REASSEMBLED, SLIGHTLY ASKEW
We are delighted to be able to offer the chance to experience Reassembled, Slightly Askew by artist Shannon Yee at this year’s meeting in the Thinking Factory upstairs in the Castleknock Hotel
Reassembled, Slightly Askew is an autobiographical, audio-based artwork about Shannon’s experience of falling critically ill with a rare brain infection and her journey of rehabilitation with an acquired brain injury. Audience members experience Reassembled individually, listening to the audio via headphones, while lying on a hospital bed.
The audio technology makes the sound three-dimensional, causing listeners to feel they are inside Shannon’s head, viscerally experiencing her descent into coma, brain surgeries, early days in the hospital, rehabilitation, and re-integration into the world with a hidden disability.
Through artistic collaboration with an interdisciplinary team of artists, alongside her consultant neurosurgeon, head injury nurse and neuropsychologist, Shannon has created a new form of storytelling that immerses the listener safely in the first-person perspective to increase empathy and understanding of acquired brain injury. www.reassembled.co.uk
Places are limited and details on how to register for Reassembled, Slightly Askew will be available after registration.
