Mark Farid Plans to Live for a Month in Virtual Reality(▼)(▲)
November 18, 2014
Next year, artist Mark Farid wants to give up a month of his life to virtual reality. If a crowdfunding campaign succeeds, he’ll spend 28 days in a gallery, wearing a VR headset and a pair of noise-canceling headphones. For the duration of the show, all he’ll experience will be video and audio captured by a complete stranger, going about their daily life. When they eat, he’ll eat. When they sleep, he’ll sleep. As much as modern technology permits, he will let his individual identity evaporate.
I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes next year. The rest of The Verge's article goes more in depth on the plans and previous similar experiments. Interesting read.
