During Autumn of 2011, Jacqueline Donachie and Revital Cohen produced new works in dialogue with academics in the Department of Sport and Exercise Science, responding to research into improving human performance. Fascinated by technologies of surveillance, measurement and improvement, their playfully intense works probed the relationships between psychology and performance, mind and body, and the ordinary and the extraordinary.
