An ambitious moving image installation by Lindsay Seers exploring schizophrenia and contemporary insights into the condition.

Shaped by philosophical ideas and scientific research concerned with the phenomenon of consciousness, Seers’ work combines industrial robotics with a three-screen video projection.

The exhibition draws on first-person accounts, discussions with experts, and an experimental treatment known as Avatar Therapy, in which those living with schizophrenia can speak to their persecutors in a digital world.

Using Victorian surgeon James Miranda Barry as a narrator, Seers also explores her fascination with how an individual's biography embodies history, recreating Barry’s future life as an Avatar with the ability to cure.
