- Title: Photographs of artwork: 'The Solitary Waltz' by Jojo Taylor
- Description: "A hybrid textile and sound piece combining the style of clothes that a female might have worn entering an asylum in the 1900s and a strait jacket that she may have been restrained in. Made out of a blanket, it has comments from the asylum staff stitched into it. Photographs of the patient's faces are printed onto the piece, but with their mouths erased. Voiceless, we will never know their story, of their lives, in their own words, the stories that brought them to this place. George Radcliffe suffered with mental health issues and documents in the Delm-Radcliffe Collection and The Hill End collection inspired this piece of art."
Inspired by Female case book Hill End Asylum VIII HM1/Pa3/14, Female case book III, HM1/Pa3/13,DE/R/C286/5, D/ER/C118/1, D/ER/C118/2, DE/R/C107/17, -DE/R/B42/2, DE/R/106/4 and DE/R/C107/5
