Outrospectre is a proposal for a medical device that simulates an out-of- body experience. As suggested by recent (para-) psychological research, this could possibly reduce our fear of death.

Referencing X-ray machines and CT scans, this installation questions how we could begin to apply said research to designing tools and techniques for hospitals to help patients
comfortably acknowledge their own mortality. Supported by Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK). Commissioned by Waag Society – Creative Care Lab, Makerversity Amsterdam, Museum Vrolik.
