This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2016.
This painted stop-frame animation film tells the story of Ray, a patient who has lost his central vision to age-related macular degeneration. He becomes the first person with this condition to see with help from new technologies, highlighting advances in the treatment of sight loss and what they mean for humanity.
Ocular Bionica was made by artist Lucy Burscough in collaboration with Professor Paulo Stanga and Manchester Vision Regeneration Lab, inspired by real clinical trials.
