Event description

Description

Seeing is Believing is a participatory art installation created by artist Eugenie Lee that explores perceptions of pain. There are two main stages of the experience, both of which are fully moderated by the artist. The entire experience will take approximately 35 minutes but may take longer.

Stage 1: The first stage uses a mediated reality device. This mirage machine is the same equipment used by Body In Mind at UniSA for their research.

Stage 2: Participants sit inside a sound proof room with the artist where they will undergo a virtual reality experience.

The virtual reality experience is designed to convey sensory and cognitive experiences that are similar to people with chronic pain.

The artist will be monitoring each participant’s responses and have a safety control switch that immediately stops the programs. If a participant wants to stop, they are free to do so at any time and the artist will be there to stop the program immediately and assist the participant.

Please note: These experiences may or may not produce nausea, heightened anxiety, body perception disturbance, and a perception of discomfort or pain. The experience is not recommended for people under 18 or with the following health conditions:

    • Epilepsy
    • Current right-hand pain or history of chronic right-hand pain
    • Heart conditions
    • Metal implants in the hand

    • Anxiety disorders or panic attacks
    • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
    • Severe skin conditions affecting the hands
    • Reduced sensation of the hands
