Fractured Visions: To See Again
Kings College London, Guy’s Campus
25th September – 30th October 2014
A part of Merge Festival
Outside Guy’s Chapel and Great Maze Pond
Together they have created a freely accessible digital, mobile installation, located on the KCL Guy’s campus by London Bridge, depicting the effects of a visual perceptual disorder called palinopsia. A symptom of neurological dysfunction, palinopsia causes images to repeat and perseverate across the visual field. Accompanying the installation, is a digital catalogue, an on-line film and blog.
To see the installation you will need a smartphone or tablet and the Layar Augmented Reality app.
FREE tours of the installation: Wednesdays and Saturdays at 5pm and 5.30pm. Book using the Eventbrite calendar to the right.

Inspired by “polyopia,” staring at The Shard or Guy’s Tower will provoke multiple images to appear.

Stand on Great Maze Pond, beside the blue sign shown below.
Face the side of Guy’s Tower.
Inspired by “illusory visual spread,” staring at first one building and then another will cause the facades to spread to neighbouring buildings.
