Nevejan has been researching this project the last three years till march 2016.
10 children and young adults who have absence-epilepsy, express together their inner worlds. All the works, paintings, VR, Film, Book, installations were shown on a intimate art show in July 2016. For pictures check the NEWS item on this site about it. There will be closed and semi-open sessions with scientists and neurologists evaluating the results. We will present the project to a broader audience in the fall 2016.
We are working on a platform, a graphic novel, a game and a feature documentary based on our research.
