LAB PROJECT:

RELIGIOUS TRIBAL SCIFI MACHINE

Six participants enter a space in VR where they experience a scifi sacred ritual through 360° live stream. They can influence the energetic flow of the ritual through the intensity of their own movements (holding hands, dancing in circles, singing etc). As in tribal rituals the individual self migrates towards a communal self – creating a scifi spiritual experience in VR.
