2013 In-between-ness: Using Art To Capture The Changes To The Self During Antidepressant Treatment
Royal College of Psychiatry International Congress Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Scotland
2 – 5 July, 2013
The In-between-ness study is a collaboration between professional artists,researchers and people diagnosed with major depression. The aim is to explore the experiential effects of antidepressant treatment by using video as a tool to make artworks. Each week the participants met with the artists to review the films they created. Participants were encouraged to reflect on changes in their perceptions; their sense of self and authenticity; and their sense of agency in relation to their well being.
This exhibition, within the Cromdale Flyer at the EICC, will mark the launch of the In-between-ness website www.in-between-ness.co.uk and will include collaborative films and video stills made by the participants. In attendance will be Karen Heald, Susan Liggett, Professor Rob Poole, Dr Richard Tranter and Professor Catherine Robinson.
