"We’ll be at Unique Cottage Studios and Café for two drop-in days where visitors can come and watch the film which is ten minutes long and take part in an ongoing national conversation about how we assess one another."

The film, which he is touring around the UK, is part of his work at the Wellcome Collection in London.
