Results and Impact AS one example... "Nature's Great Experiment," http://www.naturesgreatexperiment.com This is an installation of three videos inspired by our Environmental Risk Longitudinal Twin Study (E-risk) in collaboration with artist Jordan Baseman. The show had its debut at the Monash University Museum of Art and Design in February, 2007, and shows at the Wellcome Trust Museum of Medicine in London in May, 2007. "Laws of Variation" films a very bloody multiple-birth delivery, with voiceover of Terrie Moffitt discussing the joys and traumas of human variation. "Tape1 Tape2" presents a mother of MZ twins explaining to a researcher the reasons why she adores one daughter and dislikes the other. "Nature's great experiment" narrates a research workers' view of the science of behavioural genetics, and describes her day-to-day experiences with families, some of whom harm or neglect their twins. The art was funded by the Wellcome Trust. The art was funded by the Wellcome Trust. The website has been visited by more than 30,000 viewers each year since 2007. In 2010 the films are screened in lecture theatres and galleries in Belfast, Dundee, Aberdeen, Hull, and Bury St. Edmunds, as part of the Wellcome Trust "identity" series.
