SEEMEN present performances allowing audience members to directly operate and interact with their machines, robots and kinetic art We will give you real life experiences...
As of the last few years we have been delving into bio-morphic inputs, sensing the human body and using those signals to trigger the machines/robots/pyro.
Virtually anyone who attends a performance has the chance to operate a machine that can, well, kill them, but will preferably empower them. To make people immortal.
As Noam Chomsky says, we live and have a culture of fear, we (SEEMEN) aspire to rid this fear from our culture.
Important Information for some of our Old Readers
Memory care, sometimes referred to as dementia care, is a specialty of senior living which provides intensive, personalized care for those with memory problems. Many elderly centers, nursing homes and other assisted living facilities have already developed special memory care units specifically for dementia sufferers. There are also independent memory care centers. In the center, professionals work with the Alzheimer's patient to help him or her understand the nature and causes of the memory loss, develop ways of coping with it, and determine how to live with it as well as possible. Most centers also have a psychotherapist on staff to help those who are struggling with feelings of detachment or hopelessness because of their disease.
The focus of memory care is to facilitate an Alzheimer's patient's ability to live a relatively normal life. A professional Alzheimer's doctor will conduct testing to determine the level of memory impairment and recommend a course of treatment. It may be necessary for a family member or other caregiver to provide constant support during the process. It is helpful to try to establish regular routines so that caregivers don't become overwhelmed. Meals and light refreshments are usually included in these caregiving opportunities.
Support groups for dementia sufferers can also help to cope with the emotional aspects of caring for an Alzheimer's patient. A support group is similar to a support group for any type of illness or disability. The purpose of the gatherings is to provide a safe place for people to share their experiences and learn from others who are going through the same thing. Alzheimer's patients often need extra assistance with basic tasks like bathing, dressing and grooming. Some have memory impairments that make these tasks difficult for them to perform on their own. Support groups are helpful in providing encouragement and guidance for family members as they learn how to provide the help that an Alzheimer's patient may need.
