Ensnared: The Inescapable Reality of Fatigue
Wednesday 27th October
2pm – 3pm
Ensnared explores the visceral reality of life with post-stroke fatigue through a series of immersive digital artworks that will be shown for the first time in this session. A collaborative arts and neuroscience project created by artist Sofie Layton, in collaboration with stroke survivors and neuroscientists Dr Anna Kuppuswamy and Dr William De Doncker, the themes were developed through a series of narrative workshops with stroke survivours.
The resulting stories and metaphors have inspired the work in its different iterations. Through a series of workshops, participants explored the multi-sensory nature of fatigue and ways of expressing this through narrative, metaphor and artistic media. Through this work we aim to make the invisible condition of post-stroke fatigue visible with the hope of informing scientific research and deepening everyone’s understanding of the physical and emotional challenges for fatigue.
