Exactly 100 years ago, in 1907, Dr Duncan
MacDougall published the results of a
scientific experiment in the New York
Times. He had set up a complex device
within a hospice to weigh the human body
before and after death. He reported that
the human soul weighs 21 grams.

To celebrate the centenary of Dr
MacDougall?s experiment, 31 designers,
artists and illustrators from the Royal
College of Art + guests will be showing a
collection of work at the Dazed & Confused
Gallery on Old Street. Each piece of work
will weigh 21 grams and will be on the
subject of the soul.
