Can You Help?
Can you help us develop a new interactive experience, telling stories of women’s healthcare struggles, particularly the hidden experiences of breast cancer treatment?
Mammary Mountain is an innovative artwork that uses cutting edge technology creatively exploring and exposing women’s healthcare struggles, particular on the hidden experiences of breast cancer treatment. Currently in development, the lived experiences of women will inform its evolution and contain its stories that often go unheard.
Mammary Mountain will be a unique experience set in a doctor’s office. As “patients,” the audience will wear a special haptic jacket, sit in a bespoke chair shaped like mammary glands, and use a VR headset to experience this intimate performance. The work will be both a physical artefact exhibition and a digital / virtual technology experience.
Audiences will be guided through powerful stories of survivors, and shed light on the often-unspoken horrors of treatment. This will be done through the beautiful and thought-provoking illustrations and music of Tara Baoth Mooney, alongside 3D and VR art by Maf’j Alvarez and story design by Camille Baker, even feeling the experience through a vibration garment and interactive design
