Moral Horizons of Pain

An experiential art-tech installation!

You will travel through several art installation stations where you will interact with physicians and researchers and consider two views of medical care.

The first view is technical, in which peoples’ bodies and experiences of pain are measured and categorized. The second view is moral and embodied, in which peoples’ stories, emotions and expressions of pain are centered. This interactive art installation will immerse the audience in the dramatically different nature of both perspectives.

This innovative art experience is created by the Critical Data Sense team from the University of Calgary. They piloted the project in August, and then advanced and reworked the installation for this second viewing in October.

Please Note:

- Sign up for a specific time slot.

- Participants will be admitted into the installation in small groups of 2-3 people.

- It will take approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete this interactive art installation experience.

- SPACES ARE LIMITED. If you can’t use your registration, please contact artsPlace so that your spot can be filled by another participant.

Thank you to Pine Tree Players for the use of their projectors and screens for this event.
