Self: Reconfigured is a Virtual Reality experience that offers the chance for audiences to experience themselves in new and fascinating ways. The work combines physical encounters with VR content; playing with the sensory alignment between “what is seen and what is felt”, so as to reconfigure our perception of “self” and open up new ways for us to experience and understand. An immersive journey of embodied (un)learning, Self: Reconfigured suggests our potential as people to change and wills us to reconnect anew with the world, our environment, society and our communities, without assuming a separate and all–important sense of self as the starting point.
