FACT & Headspace:The Art of the Surgeon

Photography by Patrick M Higgins –

On 20 November, in a groundbreaking collaboration, FACT invited surgeon Christian Duncan to demonstrate his work.

This was a unique opportunity to see the delicate work of a highly experienced surgeon in action, as part of the Headspace project.. The Headspace project, created by Alder Hey in conjunction with FACT and associated artists will develop a comprehensive database of human head shapes using state of the art 3D photography.
