How do the environments in which we live affect our mental health and behaviours?

Look on me and be renewed by Mark King is a new artwork that was created in collaboration with John Marsden, a Professor of Addiction Psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London, and Changing 7, a group of people with lived experience and recovery from substance use.

Together the group photographed the London Bridge area, and explored how visual prompts from our surroundings are connected to the behavioural patterns and rhythms that govern or determine our decisions and experiences.  The photographs became the basis for the creation of a site specific artwork presented at Science Gallery London.
