'Over Prikkeling' is about the overloading of the senses (overprikkeling in Dutch). My ambitions with this project was to help those who experience this overloading of the senses and its negative side effects. To reach that goal I’ve created an interactive animation which I’ve design to help the viewer get out of their head and into their body. The work stimulates multiple sense and shows associative imagery. This helps the viewer regain consciousness of their body and find calmness in that sensation.
I've looked at both the medical side of sensory overloading and the artistic side of dealing with and expressing these sensations. Subjects I touch upon include: mindfulness, color theory, surrealism, haptic film and multi-sensory art.
