Summary
Through this installation we want to explore multiple layers of reality, toying with the idea of people’s perception of reality, exploring what is real and what isn’t, and trying to have people question their current beliefs about on reality. A big part of our project is based on Plato’s concept of the Allegory of the Cave, which discusses how humans perceive reality and whether there is any higher truth to existence. We focused on using just thermal camera, and no motion camera, to achieve all of our effects. For us, a main point was making visible what is normally invisible to the naked eye, and thus we wanted all our effects to stem from this concept as well.

Showcasing Time & Emotion through Temperature & Colour


Week One Pitch:

Magnifying Senses in the Theatre with Technology

I've been trying really hard to see how I can define my project. I am a stage designer who is very passionate in bringing people together. I also wanted to extend our experiences in the theatre with more visual content that can help with understanding our emotion in the theatre. My interest lies in how I can incorporate more physical interaction and create better interconnection between people in what I produce.

Senses that I wanted to explore are “how we can touch the intangible” & “how we can see the invisible”. I wanted to research the digital forms of ways of showing visuals but I also wanted to understand human senses more, such as through neuroscience, and to create a brand new show that can help you understand “YOU”.

Documentation of Final Research

ENTANGLED CONNECTION: Layer 2
How does your surroundings/environment affect your perceived reality?

This part of the installation explores how our beliefs are affected depending on the people and our surroundings. Allowing us to ponder how our confirmation bias distorts what we believe to be confirmed truths.

QUINTESSENTIAL EXISTENCE: Layer 3
How do you define living?

This last part of the installation is a meditative section, where the focus is on your breath. As this is the essence of life and the only reality we know to be true. We are alive because we are breathing.

In this final layer, audiences no longer see any form of themselves. The thermal camera detects the audience’s breathing, with their in + out breath transformed into a beautiful graphic and designed sound.

Due to exclusivity we cannot share every detail of this project, but we would love to hear from you. Contact us through vivian@wecreateint.com or on instagram: vlu.design
