Brad Necyk is a visual and digital artist based in Edmonton. His work aims to foster the co-creativity of art projects with people living with illness in communities across Canada. He has worked with recent transplant patients, head and neck cancer patients, suicide survivors in the Arctic, and psychiatric patients at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, embedding the resulting pieces in artworks made using 3D video rendering and virtual reality. He also draws on his own illness experiences, weaving and knotting them with the co-created works he produces across the country. He aims to tell stories of illness with the hope to increase our confidence and capacity in expressing and discussing these meaningful events in our lives.
