As a game designer and a 3D modeler I’ve been disillusioned with digital media worship of technological advancement, especially when the technology ignores existing artifacts in order to advance a capitalist agenda. For me this is centred around the advancement of VR technology- the creation of expensive wasteful VR headsets and technology which are not accessible to most people (due to cost, and the fact that those headsets are uncomfortable to a large percentage of the population).
Looking at the history of VR and stereoscopic imaging reveals the fact that the technology behind those is actually quite simple and can be replicated using cardboard, video projection and simple image processing. The installation (as envisioned right now), will be set in a small dark room, with one single chair and four projectors who will be projecting anaglyph videos. Anaglyph video are videos, where the image was separated into visible color channels. This allow the viewer to see the image in 3D when wearing the right set of color coded 3D glasses (red/blue in this case). Participants will be enter the room, grab a set of glasses sit down and immersive themselves in the 3D videos.
