Mammary Mountain is an intimate immersive virtual reality(VR) experience that explores dis-ease within the body during breast cancer and the body’s relationship to the broader context of the land. This new interactive experience tells the stories of patients and survivors healthcare struggles, and the hidden experiences of breast cancer treatment.
Mammary Mountain is a unique experience set in a doctor’s office. As ‘patients,’ the audience wears a special haptic jacket, sits in a bespoke chair shaped like mammary glands, and uses a VR headset to experience this intimate performance. The artists hope this work ignites new public engagement, ultimately resulting in a more nuanced and holistic understanding of the breast cancer treatment experience.
