Altered Perceptions

Altered Perceptions is an extended research project exploring ways in which emerging media forms such as Virtual Reality film can be used to portray empathic experiences of full or partial sight loss to both the fully sighted and vision impaired audiences. A key output is a fictional retelling of an artist’s gradual loss of vision, and his subsequent adaption and incorporation of other senses – particularly his enhanced awareness of sound – into the paintings which he continues to strive to create.
