Georgia Perrin - STIMMING 101

One in a hundred people in the United Kingdom have Autism. For those on the Autism spectrum, information overload experiences are a daily issue. ‘Self stimulatory behaviour’ or 'stimming', encompasses a variety of actions or behaviours that provide the Autistic person with a means of coping in overwhelming situations, such as repeatedly tapping, spinning or arranging items in order. This exhibit references information overload through a disorganised composition of posters, conveying the self-stimulatory behaviour that provides Autistic people with relief.
