my search
My search
  • NO PAIN, NO GAIN
    • No clear objective set. The player has to figure out what to do inside the game and where to go next.
  • DEALING WITH FRUSTRATION
    • Impossibility of winning. What does it mean to win when you have no objective so far?
  • VIRTUAL REALITY AND IMMERSION
    • Immersion through imagery VERSUS immersion through pain, tactile
  • THE GAZE OF THE VIEWER
    • How can our gaze upon the avatar enhance our sense of immersion and familiarity

why is it installation art
Why is it installation art?

"We can only develop as human beings if we actively inquire into and interact with our environment. Being thrust into new circumstances means having to reorganize our repertoire of responses accordingly, and this in turn enlarges our capacity for 'experience’.”

John Dewey
