Tactile experience design/construction for the VR film TREE.
This is me, my hair, my lip, my smell, the way my head moves and the body I live in. The sense of self is not fixed but continuously updates in response to the present information. When the body senses itself internally and localizes its actions, it provides the basis for a material sense of self existence. At the same time, our mind registers the sense of an agency with free will, the sense of being the cause of voluntary action. Present self continuously becomes the past, and by the time we look into it we are in another present, consumed with planning the future. In this talk, I will discuss my work that alters the perception of self, through multi-sensory stimulation and induced interceptive experiences.
