Working with King's gastroenterologists, Sam Bompas and Harry Parr present a voyage to the center of the gut.
Following a short introduction on the medical practice of endoscopy and gastroenterology the presenter will swallow a SynMed pill-cam. This will stream footage from within as the camera moves along the alimentary canal.
The resulting footage will be used to illustrate a volume of Memoirs of a Stomach – an obscure 1852 diet book told from the perspective of a stomach. The art book combining scans of the volume with contemporary gastroenterological photography will distributed through selected bookshops in October.
Each participant in the event will receive a copy of a book which opens with the view from their own tongue.
