Here We Are – A Turing Torture
Stereoscopic 360°, 4K, 5.1 Sound, 7'35 min.
The audience finds itself surrounded by painted architecture, based on digitized acrylic paintings by the artist group 'Swan Collective'. The accompanying voice over of an almighty programmer tries to convince the viewer, that s/he is in fact not a human being, but an artificial intelligence, implanted into a social media app. The audience's memories of a life leading up to the VR-experience are said to be scripted by a writing team.
The experience uses Virtual Reality's power to take over your senses, in order to leave the audience powerless against the doings of a programmer.
