The existence of a network is integrated into our lives. By using guidance from notifications, advertisements and UI, we are handing over information without our knowledge, and being further guided.
Because there are a few opportunities to think about how we are being guided, I wanted for people to think about this through my work this time. By actually touching UI and utilizing the immersive feeling and interaction unique to VR, I expressed “the opacity and instability of the destination where we are led.”
Regarding the relationship between a mouse and a manekineko (cat object inviting good luck) which appears at the end, the mouse represents us who hand the information unconsciously and the manekineko represents the system that sucks in our information.
It shows the relationship value from chasing and being chased between a cat and a mouse.
