ICTAL; relating to or caused by an epileptic seizure



This work was part of DaDaFest International at A Foundation in Liverpool in 2008. These are the prints from that exhibition and the accompanying video called 'Ictal'. The video went on to win the International League Against Epilepsy centenary video prize awarded in Budapest.

ICTAL - 20O8

The Ictal video was highly rated by the ILAE for showing a seizure in a simple and direct way. Cinema has a long history of showing only exaggerated and unrealistic tonic clonic seizures. This forms a negative view of people with epilepsy.


'Ictal' was made with ACE funding, support from PVA MediaLab and with Sammy Izri as camera man.
