Self by Choice is research led project exploring the neuroscience of body image, self-worth and identity, understanding body image based as an embodied and highly biased perception of our physicality.
It is designed as an experiential journey which aims to provoke curiosity and to challenge the audience's own perception of their physicality.
Neuroscience may help us understand the thought processes that affect our body image and the internally-conflicting perceptions of our own bodies.
The aim is to offer a platform to reach out, share and strengthen an ever-growing voice through the lens of art and creativity and the focus is on how much agency we have for transformation.
