Time-Body Study | Performative Experiment | 2016

What would feel like to be in another person's body?

How would it affect our notion of others?

What can it tell us about ourselves?

 

Time-Body Study is a performative experiment exploring the impact re-embodiment in virtual reality has on the boundaries of body, identity, and self. In the experiment participants, wearing a virtual reality head-mounted display (HMD), are re-embodied in the body of a 7, 40 and 80-year-old person. ​
