Ambika P3 and the Casebooks Project have commissioned six artists to engage with one of the largest surviving sets of medical records in history. Between 1596 and 1634, the astrologers Simon Forman and Richard Napier recorded 80,000 consultations. The Casebooks Project, based at the University of Cambridge, is making these records openly available. The original manuscripts are held in the Bodleian Library, Oxford.
The main exhibition is interdisciplinary in nature with works ranging from robotics, sculpture, video and audio installation, performance and artificial intelligence.

The work has been funded by the Wellcome Trust and produced in partnership with Dr Lauren Kassell, Director of the Casebooks Project and Dr Natalie Kaoukji, Research Fellow at the Department of History & Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge.
