This symposium will bring together art therapists, artists, and video game designers and collaborative teams who are curious about and investigating digital media for therapeutic processes and healing narratives. Through this platform, we hope to support and create continued dialogue for interdisciplinary interest around digital media for therapeutic purposes. There will be a sharing of ideas and projects including methods of implementation and the implications of digital media use in therapeutic practice.
I recently viewed and listened to Pablo Garcia’s video “Adventures in Virtuality” and found it most interesting to the subject matter regarding the history of virtuality as unlinked from computer-mediated tools but also regarding our relationship to art forms of illusion and ‘machine’ generated artworks.
