Topiary and Treppanation
Here are some images taken at Beckley Park in Oxfordshire. Not only home to fabulous examples of topiary some of which are over 100 years old but also home to Amanda Fielding, artist and scientific director and founder of The Beckley Foundation. Fielding is perhaps best known for her self-trepanation in the early 1970's, and is an expert in the research of expanding consciousness as well as taking a huge role within of the independent study of psychology and neurophysiology. She will be talking at The Breaking Convention in Canterbury as well as speaking and showing her film " Hearbeat in the brain" (documenting her trepanation) at the ICA as part of the Strange Attractor Salon that will run alongside the Nathanial Mellors show.
