Quentin Destieu, Sylvain Huguet, Romain Senatore, interactive installation, 2009
Psychotik Room is an interactive installation in which the viewer is immersed in a psychiatric isolation room with 3D glasses.
By dint of motion sensors and heartbeats sensor, the 3D environment and sound are modified in real time.
This installation established relationship between new media’s immersion, and social isolation of the individual.
Thus underlining the frailty of human body confronted with today’s world, in a sterile hospital universe, out of reality, referring to the horror films aesthetic.
This installation offers to the viewer a moment of deep closeness and meditation, in a 3D universe modified under corporal’s pressure which may cause claustrophobia feelings.
