Dr Kai Syng Tan Art Projects

Art + Neurodiversity 

#MAGICCARPET: We Sat On A Mat and Had a Chat and Made Maps! #MagicCarpet was an award-winning art-psychiatry commission. It brought visual art practice and research in dialogue with psychiatric research, with the case study of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how that relates to the phenomena of mind wandering to explore constructs and boundaries of ‘normality’.
