Co-creating digital sculpture with people with dementia
From November 2015 to April 2016 seven participants engaged and experimented with different types of sculpture-making, from clay and papier-mâché to virtual and digital sculptures during sessions at The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge, Canterbury. Led by Sumita Chauhan who exhibited her own art work, both physical and digital, the project reflects ways in which creative potential of people with dementia can be explored through meaningful artistic engagement and artistic co-creation. All participants showed immense determination and enthusiasm in taking on many different ways of making sculpture. The title of the exhibition Sculptural Revelations, reflects how the works on display reveal stories of participants' passions, personality and beliefs. The project is supervised by Ania Bobrowicz and Dr Jim Ang.
