Farid, Mark (2015) Augmentation Without Boundaries. In: ISMAR 2015: Presenting Seeing I, 29 September - 3 October 2015, Fukuoka International Congress Centre, Japan.

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Farid, Mark

Artist Mark Farid presenting his research so far in the development of Seeing I. This included development on the 360 degree, first person point of view recorder, along with research done onto Farid in the affects of long-term immersion in virtual reality experiencing the lives of other people.

Dissolving identity – ‘Seeing I’ examines the identity of the individual and whether it is possible to subvert it. The project seeks answers to whether who we are is a cultural identity, or whether there is an inherent self. To do this a subject will wear a virtual reality headset seeing, hearing and replicating the experiences of the other from first person point of view for 24 hours a day, for 28 days. Crucially to immerse himself further into the context where identity may be subverted the subject will simultaneously do whatever ‘the other’ does.
