False Mirror

 

False Mirror is an Open-ended, Interactive, Virtual Reality project. Which aims to explore futurism and emerging forms of inhabiting in Virtual Space-times as post-humans. By creating a vibrant Virtual city that eventually becomes a bedrock to all the various sub-spaces inside it.

Facing the challenge of designing such city, is a practice to think through exciting new problems that haven’t been imagined in the real life. Approaching Phenomenology of human experience,  Spatial cognition, Temporality, information systems, new social interactions/participation, and many other raising questions.

The user in this world has the agency to explore the inter-connected spaces and further customize and craft their world and body to explore and reach a unique personalized gestalt. By offering post-human and embodied kits for the user, they can explore and perceive their surrounding virtual space in alternative ways.

Development

VR project is not yet playable for public exhibitions as many interactions and mechanics require pro-VR users to get hang of. But I started to record “Dev Diary” video series on Youtube where I break down some aspects of the project as it gets developed in each episode. Check out this playlist :
