Capturing the Human Side of Healthcare
Patient Translations is a multi-faceted audio and visual artwork about the experience of being a patient, supporting a patient, or managing health. It is made by artists Halsey Burgund and Kelly Sherman from voices contributed by the public about their personal experiences.
This site is a tool that lets you contribute your voice to the artwork, as well as listen to the artwork's evolving audio collage of music and voices. You will need a flash enabled browser and a microphone to add a story to this site. Stories can also be added via the iOS application.
Patient Translations is generously sponsored by Mad*Pow, BostonCHI and John Snow, Inc (JSI). It was initially developed for the 2013 Healthcare Experience Design Conference and was featured as part of TEDMED 2013.
