BlindTrust focuses on power relationships between participants, surveillance, non-verbal communication, and the increasingly blurred line that separates real and virtual objects or environments.
The installation consists of a navigable virtual reality environment with doorways placed in inaccessible areas and a 5” RFID tagged physical cube which allows a change of gravity within the VR space.
One player controls movement through the virtual environment, but in each room a shift in gravity is required to move forward. The second player cannot move through the space but has control of the gravity orientation by turning of the cube.
Blind Trust is a collaborative work between artists Paul McCormick,Yaman Terzioglu, Oren Darling and Patryk Ozga.
