CONFERENCE FOR THE CURIOUS | VPRO MEDIALAB EXPLORES THE FUTURE OF MEDIA AND STORYTELLING

Independent artist Jennifer Kanary Nikolov(a) has tried to formulate an answer to the question of what a thought is since 1998. How does a thought affect our body (our brain), our behavior, and our consciousness? In her artistic development, she imagined a thought being born from a mind and then being able to capture it. This led to several media art installations that formed complete worlds in which the visitors could literally get lost: an immersive experience. One of these is Labyrinth Psychotic, which transforms your direct perceptions into a simulation of psychosis, allowing you to experience how psychosis blends realities and perceptions. The visitor is fully immersed in the mesmerizing, risky, and confronting world of psychosis.
