The acute stroke unit as transitional space

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


This exhibit traverses the drawing, health and wellbeing, and space and place strands. Creative methods and drawing were used in research that explored the lived experience of the acute stroke unit. As I worked at length with the peoples’ accounts, it became evident that I needed to find a way to dwell within the meaningful lived space of the unit. The maps were a device that helped me open up and produce a space, and capture the complexity, spatiality, and holistic understanding being developed. They also embodied my involvement, position and place within them, as I drew, plotted, re-thought, interrogated and re-designed; how I too moved and travelled through this space. This exhibit illuminates how marks and drawing make meaning, by enhancing the hermeneutic process of understanding, by capturing and conveying meaning, and by extending the life of dialogue for others.
