Science Gallery London presents Becoming Blood, an alternative Halloween weekender of free events, interactive installations and experiences around Peckham exploring the vital fluid inside us all.
Art works include interactive installation Acid Yellow 7 from artist Beatrice Haines in collaboration with King’s College London forensic scientists, the Blood Bikers, a roving performance team gathering stories about blood from Londoners, a historical reckoning with a cream tea from Aboriginal artist S.J Norman, and installations from Interaction Design students at London College of Communication. Artist Jamie Lewis Hadley brings his Blood on the Streets performance to a local barber shop to explore the history of blood donation and bloodletting, and Lynn Lu, in collaboration with neuroscientists, invites you to look inside your blood and think about what else it reveals.
Becoming Blood takes place across multiple sites including Safehouses 1 & 2, and Station Barbers next to Peckham Rye station.
Open 28 & 29 October
Blood on the Streets by Jamie Lewis Hadley: 7:30pm
