Impossible Space

in collaboration with Yiyi Wang and Alexander Kendall

How do we interpret what we see into a coherent notion of environment? And how would we respond to the inability to do this? Impossible space is a VR experience where the user is placed into a series of virtual spaces where her/his movements, together with the light, are used to obstruct and shape the understanding of space itself. Wearing the VR headset, the audience is attached onto an inflatable structure which interactions blur the boundaries between the real and the virtual space. Edges are constantly remodelled and dissolved, rendering the environment only fleeting legible. The real becomes fictional and the fictional becomes real.
