Discover a triptych in Leake Street by multidisciplinary artist Emma Allen (UK), who uses faces as living canvasses to tell stories.

Through 750 photographs, Ruby sees Allen's painted face transform from a skull into a sky full of shooting stars; while Santiago traces the history of humankind mapped out from it's single cell origin to a digitally defined future.

Adam: Grey Matters is a new piece looking at depression. Collaborating with neuroscientist Daisy Thompson-Lake under the project title Grey Matters, they seek to reduce the stigma accompanying mental health issues by illustrating the underlying neurobiological processes.
