Hector Centeno - Sitting Under a Highway

Co-Presented with

Sitting Under a Highway is part of a research-creation project and is presented as an interactive audiovisual virtual and presential space. Visitors will experience photo-realistic 3D visuals and spatial audio that are the product of an artistic practice centered on the attentive aesthetic exploration of a physical place. The VR space that the user inhabits is activated through the combined measurement of concentration and relaxation via an EEG reader. A hand tracker allows the user to also physically interact in space. Through mindfulness we engage with the environment, in the hope that art created with such processes can contribute to a better understanding of the disconnect that exists between post-modern society and our inhabited places.

This will be a presentation of an updated version of the work that uses the room-scale capabilities of the HTC Vive VR viewer. The user will now be able to stand and walk around to explore the virtual space.
