Not specifically about female epileptics, but about human epilepsy in
general, it would be important in my opinion to discuss Paul Sharits' film
"Epileptic Seizure Comparison", in which we see and hear a patient
experiencing a seizure, and this seizure is then translated into scales of
colors and musical pitches. The flicker sensation attempts to induce an
experience of similar brainwave patterns while watching the film. Sharits
often had problems with viewers of his flicker films having epileptic
seizures in the screening room. He and Tony Conrad ("The Flicker", "Straight
and Narrow") had to post warnings whenever the films were shown.
