Vort_i_city is a figuratively abstract, performative film that explores the line between sanity and insanity. Connecting your occipital and temporal lobe in a didactic, allegorical interpretation of our historical perspective regarding mental health.
Biopsychology is a fairly modern advancement within the field of Neuroscience. It is a branch that has flowered from the theories of its historical predecessors and mental health is something that physicians have been trying to understand since Hippocrates’ theories. We now know that it comes from a chemical imbalance in the brain, but this was not always so.
Our thoughts can sometimes be overwhelming, forming a blanket of fog within our heads, for this reason, the film is overlaid to create a sensory montage. With spoken word composition, written by a long term sufferer of Agoraphobia woven with field samples of my brainwaves, taken during a collaboration with a Neuroscientist together to make an anxious looping narrative. During the collaboration, we used an EEG cap to collect data similar to that of an MRI machine which is used today to experiment with the modern idea of personality localization.
The piece is viewed originally as part of an immersive sculpture designed not only to encapsulate the mind but also the body, leaving the participant completely immersed.
