When experiencing virtual reality you normally disconnect from your body, because the only useful feature is your head which you normally use to wonder and look everywhere randomly; we wanted to control people’s actions and head movements, so we designed what we call VR meditation furniture, forcing people to adopt specific postures, enhancing the vr experience and connecting digital with real physical world, trying to use your body through virtual reality.
This is an itinerant exhibition if interested:
