ABSENCES OF LIFE
DETAILS OF THE WORK
AWARDS 2019 FINALISTS
Opportunities to lose sight of your daily life is commonplace in this world. It's pointless to be told that everyone experiences tragedies which other people will sympathize with. If you're not careful, then you tend to immediately think about things that you shouldn't because of them. Then, you're taken aback; you cheer yourself up, and while comforting yourself you regain the rhythm you need to survive reality and return to your daily life. I wanted to reproduce that kind of phenomenon. In this project, the viewer begins by believing that they are heading for the tunnel's exit, but they are then led down an unexpected path. You interact with the personal stories of people you have no connection to. The viewer sees these stories through the other person themselves, and they become someone they don't know. The viewer thinks that they are being forced into something, but then they are able to freely move about. I am aiming to create a new 'People with People' experience using VR devices.
