This exhibition takes you down a rabbit hole of the experience of dementia, using immersive soundscapes to investigate the auditory world of dementia and episodic memories, and expose what goes on behind closed doors.
The three experimental works also explore the interplay between the user and their engagement with sensory stimuli.
The Inward Eye emerges from Jane Baker’s extensive investigations into the inner world of dementia over the past nine years.
