Metafora is a research project which explores the role of metaphor in the context of narrative healing through a series of creative exchanges with hypnotherapy, aquatic and neurolinguistic practices, practitioners and participants.

The project pursues a series of collaborative narrative-based activities (including visual art, performance and installation) based on the research methodology of photographic re-narration. These activities involve creative interventions using EEG recordings at IoN Centre of Neuroscience, underwater recordings, Watsu encounters, intermedial art-making and the definition of new methodologies in the dialogue between art and science; led by floating and guided visualisation.

Project participants: Dr Christina Kolaiti (Senior Lecturer in Photography, York St John University), Cath Mather (Occupational Therapist at NHS Trust and Director of North East Aquatic Therapy), Nigel Hetherington (Director of Clinical Hypnotherapy Newcastle), Dora Frankel (Independent Dance Artist and Founding Artistic Director Fertile Ground), Tony Curry (Project participant). Dr David Lancaster (Subject Director of Music, York St John University), Dr Murphy McCaleb (Senior Lecturer of Music, York St John University), Emily Rowan (Technical Demonstrator of Music, York St John University), Richard Bracknall, Kyle Sherwin.
