Book and DVD, published by rb&hArts, 2008

John Wynne

Edited by Victoria Hume, this superbly designed book is a collection of essays with a wide range of perspectives on the Transplant project and the wider issues it raises.


Includes a 35-minute DVD by John Wynne and Tim Wainwright.

A first look reveals content that is almost snap-the-book-shut disturbing, but persevere and you are rewarded with a beautiful human story. The transplant ward is revealed as a unique and compelling environment, with alien sights and sounds and heightened emotions countered by meditative routine and endless waiting.
