The Anatomy of Panic

Gearoid O’Dea’s practice revolves around the act of grounding himself during a panic attack by documenting his surroundings during an episode and then using this documentation to create artworks.

This workshop will aim to frame an anxiety attack in a different way, exploring the role of anxiety in O’Dea’s art practice, with a cognitive psychology researcher illustrating some of the effects on the brain, and on anxiety, when you engage in creative activity.

Andrew Pringle is a post-doc researcher in the Gillan Lab at Trinity College, an institute that uses cognitive neuroscience to better understand, predict and treat mental health problems.

This event is happening again on the same day at 6pm. Please note this FOR PLAY workshop is suitable for visitors aged 15+
