Pro Standards


Summerhall, Edinburgh, part of The Same Tendency, 2019. Curated by Scarlett Platel.

Custom steel and felt pinboards present professional ethical guidelines for a range of disciplines, including law, medicine, teaching, accountancy, policing, engineering, and architecture. These are encircled by steel guard/grabrails on ferrules. 
Speakers at the end of the room play an interview with a junior doctor working in A&E on his capacity to exert individual views in a professional environment, and the difference between personal and professional opinions.
