Hubbub in modern life explored as new £1m Wellcome Collection residency begins
The urge to be busy defines modern life. Rest can seem hard to find, whether in relation to an exhausted body, a racing mind or a hectic city. Should we slow down, or should we embrace intense activity? What effects do each of these states have on the health of our bodies and minds? A new research group called Hubbub have taken residence at Wellcome Collection and are bringing together scientists, humanists, artists, clinicians, public health experts, broadcasters and public engagement professionals to breathe new life into the questions we ask about rest and busyness.
