A well-known psychotic phenomenon is the sensation that media is communicating with you. This article investigates how the phenomenon was imitated in different psychosis simulation projects that were developed in an educational context. The author clarifies why these projects are important, and why it is important to be critical when designing future projects. The author explains how the projects could be improved and illustrates this with her own artwork, INTRUDER 2.0.
