How does modern technology make you feel?
Room One has joined the Tate Modern and the Digital Maker Collective, University of the Arts London, to explore the boundaries of participation and interaction through digital experiments, performances, interventions, and conversation.
Virtual Reality has the power to change the world around you. But what does it do to your body and mind? Room One is going to discover the sensation behind the simulation by using heart monitors to measure the effects of VR on the human body.
Hosted by the Tate Modern, this experiment will use science to better understand the impact of cutting-edge technology on human physicality. Unlocking the potential healing power of the medium and scrutinising the psychological effects of a virtual existence.
Measuring heart rate, this will be the first comprehensive exploration of how we react to the creation of an alternate existence.
Virtually Real Environments
Technology is rapidly transforming the way we live, learn, work and interact, but what is ‘real’ anymore? Alongside Tate Modern and the Digital Maker Collective, University of the Arts London, Room One is exploring the emerging nature of the virtual space and the potentialities for creative art and design practices within these new generated worlds.
