Immersive Technologies Seminar Series: INTER/her

March 1 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us on March 1st for a talk with Camille Baker about her project, INTER/her, in the Visualization and Emerging Media Studio (COM 107) at UBC Okanagan.

The INTER/her project is an immersive installation and virtual experience. It was created to open up the conversation about phenomena experienced by women in their late 30’s (sometimes earlier), their 40’s, and sometimes after menopause. Working in consultation with a gynecologist, the project features interviews with a number of women telling their stories.

INTER/her has a focus on female reproductive diseases explored through a feminist lens, as personal exploration, and as a conversation starter to raise greater public awareness and encourage community building.

This talk is free and open to all, registration is not required.

This talk is presented as part of the Immersive Technologies Seminar Series, organized by NSERC CREATE in Immersive Technologies (CITech), a highly multidisciplinary graduate training program at UBC focusing on skills development and collaborative research to design immersive solutions for various real-world applications. Find out more about CITech.
