Transplant (2008) – John Wynne / Tim Wainwright

John Wynne

Tim Wainwright

The Canadian sound artist John Wynne and the British photographer Tim Wainwright spent a year as artists-in-residence at Harefield Hospital, a world-renowned center for heart and lung transplantation near London. The sound recordings and photographs of patients, medical devices, and hospital rooms made during that time constitute the material for the installation Transplant. The original audio recordings were somewhat edited; often the editing relates to the patients’ comments or observations.
