FEVER is an experience in virtual reality. For both adults and children, a high fever can mean hallucinations— auditory and visual, lucid and in dreams. As a VR experience, FEVER refers to this brief hallucinatory state, acknowledging and interpreting the metaphysical process that occurs when one is within and yet removed from one’s own body, and the limits presented herein vis-à-vis body/environment and self/other. FEVER is also a virtual poem about illness and body fictions. Different hands from different bodies have been photographed and recreated in 3D models. They form a whole spectrum that slowly floats around the user.
A series of photographs is associated to the experience.
