Ping Pong Paranoia at MORPOS Los Angeles

Vortex Dome LA
We have just received the news that 'Ping Pong Paranoia' will be receiving its international premiere in Los Angeles, California later this month. It will be shown as part of MORPHOS Immersive Video Dome Art festival on the 27th June 2014. MORPHOS is a one night immersive video experience featuring the world premiere of new experimental immersive and interactive video art in the Vortex LA Dome.
Alban Low has been immersing himself once again in the world of the simulated mental health ward. Now in his second year as artist-in-residence on the ward at Kingston University and St Georges University London he has already produced 2 films with 2 still to come.

Ping Pong Paranoia film
This current crop of films use sound recordings taken from the simulated mental health ward itself as its inspiration. The first film features both the voice of role-player Lindsay Shepherd and a soundtrack by experimental improvisation trio Toy Rokit. The film, Ping Pong Paranoia, explores the ever increasing anxiety and feeling of claustrophobia felt by the paranoid patient 'Sandra' as she voices her concerns about being stuck on the ward.

The film was first screened at the 'Art of Medicine' series at St George's University in April 2014.
