The website My Inner Wolf creates a looping representation of the experience of absence seizure—first moving into the brain, then back into the world. The playful animated images, which bring to mind cut-and-paste collages, are accompanied by Joep Beving and Suzanne Ciani’s music. We see a table with a man, a woman and a child. The camera slowly zooms in on the child, and then takes a tumble into its mind. Here it appears that the so-called “absent” brain is actually very active.

The representation of absence is partly created by the audience: everyone who opens the website on a smartphone gets a chance to fill up every surface in the image with their own photographs. Every click prompts a request for specific input: a shiny surface, a bucolic landscape, your inner wolf.
