A bit atypical in my work, Soulhacker is an applied artwork, VR applied in the context of psychotherapy.
With Dr Georges Otte and Eric Joris, we conceived Soulhacker, not as an app that you can download to replace a therapist, which is a horrible idea, but to extend the therapy with VR.
The therapist guides the experience, which is adapted to the patient. Soulhacker was conceived during the pandemic as a possbile answer to the ever rising cases of depression.
VR has exceptional qualities for transforming and environment, as such, the patient can transform a dark and dspressing environment to a more serene and joyful one.
Dr Otte conducted clinical trials which verified the results with qEEG.
Aside from the tehrapeutic application, Soulhaker is also a performance, which was presented at SMAK museum.
