Psychologist Skip Rizzo has spent the last 13 years creating groundbreaking VR work that exists at the intersection of art, technology and medicine. His most famous VR experiences, "Virtual Iraq" and "Virtual Afghanistan" are therapeutic applications meant to help soldiers confront and conquer their PTSD. Essentially video games in which players can't shoot back, "Virtual Iraq" and "Virtual Afghansitan" allow returned service members a safe way to re-experience, and thus resolve, their most traumatic experiences.Over the years, "Virtual Iraq" and "Virtual Afghanistan" have attracted a huge amount of media attention: they've been covered by news outlets like Vice and the New Yorker; have been used as a plot points in the cop show "Rizzoli and Isles"; and have been depicted in the video art of Harun Farocki. But the "Virtual" series is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Skip's ambitious work. This is going to be an amazing night, and a great opportunity to connect to directly with one of the most unique creators working in virtual reality today.
