- Part of...Robots and Avatars
Public Avatar documents the relationship between virtual reality and our perceptions of self and society. Allowing audiences to explore real-world locations remotely, and to interact with objects and people in those locations through real-time control of a human test subject Public Avatar invites you to login and give simple instructions to the avatar and experience what the avatar sees and hears via live video stream. This project explores the borders between virtual and real and tests the limits of human machine control. As digital and physical worlds collide, the boundaries between self and other, reality and simulation are constantly challenged and redefined. Public Avatar will take place on Friday 16 March, 4pm - 6pm and Saturday 17 March, 2pm - 4pm. Visit public-avatar.com during these times to get involved.
