Join David Checkley, Sarah Walden (Birmingham City University) and Coral Manton (Plymouth University, i-DAT), members of Black Hole Club’s 2017 cohort, for this interactive workshop examining the form and function of cognitive interruption as experienced by neurodivergent individuals (e.g. people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Synaesthesia, Dyspraxia, Dyslexia and ADHD).
Bringing together sculpture, immersive video and virtual reality with somatic exercises and brainwave monitoring, the workshop will encourage participants to consider the generative and creative aspects of cognitive interruption and neurological difference.
Presented as part of the University of Birmingham's Arts and Science Festival artsandsciencefestival.co.uk/
This event will take place at European Research Institute, Digital Humanities Hub, Ground Floor at University of Birmingham.
*This workshop in part focuses on sensorimotor functions and includes some physical exercises such as walking, balancing, and jumping. We welcome people of all abilities, but would urge participants not to take part in any exercises that they feel would cause them harm or that they would be unable to access safely.*
