Tinnitus, Auditory Knowledge and the Arts

Workshop activity: Tinnitus Portraits

Participants were asked to create a self-portrait that includes tinnitus, showing the direction in which tinnitus is heard as travelling. The responses suggest that those with tinnitus experience it as moving in different directions: some hear it inside their head, whereas others hear it as coming from outside. For some the sound is highly localised, while for others it can move around, or come from various directions.
