Care(less) (2019) is a highly original immersive 360-degree VR film by artist Lindsay Seers. The work uses the hallucinatory quality of VR technology to convey an embodied experience of what it is to be in an ageing body.
This OPCARE artist commission responds to new research by the University of Birmingham, University of Brighton and University of Lincoln, supported by the Wellcome Trust Enrichment Fund, into the experiences of older people receiving care they pay for themselves. The installation is part of an ongoing exploration around the ethics of care, in partnership with Fabrica gallery, Ikon Gallery, and Frequency Festival.

Last year Care(less) was exhibited at Fabrica Gallery, Brighton and in Cobb Hall, Lincoln Castle during Frequency Festival 2019, and it is now showing at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham until 23 February. See Ikon Gallery’s website for more information about visiting.
