The Other in You (2017-ongoing)
Virtual Reality Installation & Performance
The Other in You is an outcome, which brings the insights the artist and YCAM learnt over the years, into an installation piece. The Other in You sheds light on the physicality of the audience which we, including the audience themselves, have forgotten along the way. At some point during the performance, the point of sight of the viewer leaves their own body and they see themselves from above. This out-of-body sensation is a unique experience VR offers.
