Date uploaded: March 14, 2014

As part of the Cambridge Science festival, Award-winning filmmaker Shreepali Patel (Cambridge School of Art) working in collaboration with Dr Topun Austin, (Consultant Neonatologist, Addenbrooke's Hospital), announce a talk and film screening of work entitled 'The Golden Window' on Tuesday 18th March 2014 at 7pm at Ruskin Gallery.

'There is a window in which you can change the death signals sent to the brain cells, cooling stops this signalling process. When you re-warm the baby, the brain cells no longer receive that signal to go down the death pathway.'

Filmed entirely within a 72 hour period in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Rosie Hospital. The exhibition follows the therapeutic 'cooling' of Baby J after traumatic birth. It explores a world suspended between life and death, science and emotion of those involved in the intense and complex 'bubble' world of NICU. This exhibition is part of an ongoing collaboration between award winning filmmaker, Shreepali Patel and consultant neonatologist, Dr Topun Austin.
