The Waiting Room

Show trailer
‘The Waiting Room’ explores illness from a patient’s POV and reminds the audience of the person behind the diagnosis.

When Victoria Mapplebeck was diagnosed with breast cancer, she decided to record each step of her journey from diagnosis to recovery. ‘The Waiting Room’ is an unflinching portrait of the blood, sweat, and tears of cancer treatment. Seeing her cancer cells under the microscope inspired Mapplebeck to work with 3D artists to bring to life the medical imaging she collected through her treatment (CT scans, mammograms and ultrasound). The lynchpin of this VR is a 9 minute durational 360 take, a reconstruction of Victoria’s last session of radiotherapy, which marked the end of nine months of treatment.

Part of the program VR:Mortal.
