What if, in an instant, your blood started flowing in the opposite direction? What if your perceptions were comprised of strange black and white shapes? What if your world was one in which there was language, but none of it decipherable? And what if you woke up one morning and had changed drastically in size? Science fiction? No. This was your life, from 0-3.
The Museum of Our Forgotten Selves is an interactive installation exploring the experience of being a child between the ages of 0-3. I have assembled an international collective of artists and scientists to create this immersive audio adventure, inviting participants to come play, learn, and to immerse themselves in sense-bending activities that simulate the experience of who we all once were. The project invites audiences to reconnect with the mystery, wonder, weirdness and joy of the very fact of being alive.

Currently in development as a longer installation and an educational resource, Museum of Our Forgotten Selves was seen at the Toddler Takeover festival at the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta, USA October 2017, and at the Shop Front Theatre festival in Coventry, UK and at the Cambridge Science Festival in March 2018.
