Battery powered means of detecting malaria in the bloodstream while the blood is still within the body.

What a fantastic way of making the cost of testing so cheap and so flexible in terms of conditions of use that its really, really useful.

New Work for the Black Rabbit Exhibition

Friday, the 14th April 2017 was the night of the exhibition Black Rabbit curated by Lizzy Marshall at The Slab in Hazelbrook, NSW.

I’d made a new work for this exhibition, Drug test Bunny or Lab Bunny a sculpture constructed from sheer black fabric, wire and buttons squeezed onto a hospital trolley. The bunny is not in great shape. It appears defeated.

Haemoglobin colour scale used by the WHO since 1995

Hb colour scale

from the ‘A simple and reliable method for estimating
haemoglobin by G.J. Stott1 & S.M. Lewis2

Starting point for a series of new works using the colour scales of the colour of blood differentiated by a range of properties.
