Martina Menegon

keep in touch, 2019

VR experience for HTC Vive

“keep in touch” is an uncomfortable Virtual Reality experience, in which the user is surrounded and trapped by a cloud of wet grotesque hands, their fingers floating, bouncing and pointing while being very close, almost suffocating. By moving the head, one can push these hands away for a short while, but they eventually always come back. The user is left helplessly immersed in a reality full of virtual hand-looking creatures that should not be felt, yet are strongly perceivable.
