Abstract / Description of output

Eidolon is an interdisciplinary and participatory live art project, exploring the relationship between the body and technology. It brings together artists, performers, medics and technicians, at the Scottish Centre for Simulation & Clinical Human Factors (SCSCHF), Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Larbert, astate-of-the-art professional training facility, providing simulation based medical education.Collaborators include the staff of medics, nurses and technicians at the SCSCHF, dancer Freya Jeffs, and actors Stanley Pattison and Pauline Goldsmith. Eidolon explores the emotive and psychological potential of SCSCHF's mid and high fidelity manikins, embodied with physical responses and situated within two multipurpose simulation suites, representing clinical hospital locations (theatre and ward) as core constructs within a live performance. 
Eidolon is an intimate, context specific, live art project, developed through collaboration between interdisciplinary partners, for the unique setting of the simulation spaces of the SCSCHF. Eidolon is funded by Creative Scotland, The University of Edinburgh and The Wellcome Trust.
