    Transformation between Electronic Arts and Chronic Pain: Long-term Body Activity Data Visualisation and Pain Animation Expression

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2014)

    London, UK, 8 - 10 July 2014


    Xin Tong, Diane Gromala, Chris Shaw and Patrick Clarke



    For many digital artists, art is a critical technical practice, a means of critiquing the assumption that technology is a tool to be applied to all social problems. Aesthetic and affective approaches to visualisation by artists and scientists who comprise the Pain Studies Lab are integrated with tools created for patients who live with long-term chronic pain, and for their health professionals. Although this work is not the kind of personal expression of pain that artists like Frida Kahlo practiced, it is intended to provide users with an experience even as it conveys information.
