The Body Electric was launched at ICRE 2014. An inspiring selection of visual art, in a range of media – photography, drawing, painting, sculpture and film – explored the conference theme of medical technology from new critical and artistic angles.
The Body Electric is a digital visual art
show to be presented at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of
Canada’s (RCPSC) upcoming International Conference on Resident Education
(ICRE), October 18-20, 2018 in Halifax NS.
Three of my machinima works are being exhibited there as part of the show. The Singularity of Kumiko, Juniper and Virtual Environments which is a machinima showing the virtual work created for soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a commission for the United States Military. Essentially we created a virtual space to help soldiers with PTSD, I would like to say it was a great success, however, I have no idea if it was as those military types are a tight lipped bunch. In fact after I completed the project they chloroformed me and I woke up in a motel on the other side of the country. I looked at a Polaroid on the night table and it showed me with two friends and I could see that my body was slowly disappearing. It became clear to me that I had to go back in time and get my parents to kiss in order to not fade away. Ok that last part is a lie mixed with Back to the Future.
If you are in Halifax you are welcome to attend the show if there are still tickets. The tickets are a bit pricey I think so I have included the three machinima in this post below.
