Outwitting Cancer

A series of 8 films and an immersive installation that explore the big questions, hopes and challenges that drive the Crick’s remarkable scientists to try and outsmart cancer.

Commissioned by the Crick Institute, we produced eight films and Micro Cosmos, a fully immersive audio-visual installation currently on display within the biomedical research centre.
The films capture conversations between cancer researchers, patients and those with personal perspectives on the disease.
Micro Cosmos is a projected 3D structure featuring a kaleidoscope of rare microscopy images and a mesmerising soundscape by electronic composer Mira Calix. It takes visitors on a voyage of discovery into the human cell, and provides a fascinating insight into the complex, feared and often misunderstood disease.
The ongoing exhibition is the first to explore the big questions driving research into one of the world’s biggest killers. Catch it at the Francis Crick Institute until the 3th of December 2022.
