Artist and performer Catherine Long will collaborate with neuroscientists Professor Patrick Haggard and DR Beatriz Calvo-Merino, and dance/choreographer Frank Bock on research centred around embodiment and the relationship between brain and body. I will study the tension between the subjective and objective experience of the body, and the mechanics of the body, based on my unique physicality. The project will culminate in a performance (work in progress) involving movement, sound and video. This will address perceptions of and through the typical or atypical body, and the body's role in subjective experience. There will also be an exhibition of photographs and a short film will be made.
