Dr Kai Syng Tan is one of the artists and companies who have won 2017 Unlimited commissions.

A roving participatory installation celebrating mind-wandering, magic carpets, mapping, making, making small talk and making things up.

Artist-curator Dr Kai Syng Tan creates a new installation to celebrate mind-wandering — with the help of a scientist, your participation and a colourful carpet.

Channeling the exuberance of Grayson Perry’s legendary tapestries, and drawing on research on the neuroscience of the restless mind under the mentorship of Professor Philip Asherson (Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, Kings College London), as well as her lived experience as mind-wandering extraordinaire, Kai creates a mind-map in the form of a large, intricately-designed tapestry.
