VR experience & Kinetic and Light Sculpture

How can a space be altered through the agency of those who inhabit it? How is Virtual Reality stretching this boundaries?

We developed a VR installation where, in the virtual space, we created a Turrellian world that slowly changes and is altered by the movement of the person inhabiting it. To blur the boundaries of the virtual/real world, we used a DMX lighting system and an inflatable sculpture as a tool. The Turrellian colours became real in the installation room and the inflatable acts as a connection for the movement of the person between the real and the virtual world.

This project has been developed with VVVV to output to the Oculus Rift and an Arduino to control the inflatable.

It was developed by Yiyi Wang, Alexander Kendall White and Cristina Tarquini.
