Enter the Real 2014
In the experimental virtual reality installation Enter the Real visitors of the Night of Art and Sciencewere faced with the murky boundaries between the “real” and virtual world. By cutting off the tangible reality of the beholder, but let him physically run through the real space, the physical and virtual experience came together. By wearing the Oculus Rift (virtual reality headset) the consequences of the disappearing boundaries between real and fake are investigated.
The installation is developed by Snow, my ongoing collaboration with Ruben Boxman. The 3D scans of the persons in the virtual environment are made in collaboration with Richard Garsthagen on Bright Day in Amsterdam.
