THE EYE

PEER TO PEER

VIRTUAL REALITY VIDEOGAME [2017]

 

The Eye is a social experiment in videogame format, where the player will be tested for obedience without knowing so. The player will be told that if they move in certain ways they can move around in the game. In reality, there is a mediator that has controls over these movements, puppeteering the player.

Peer to Peer experiments with social behaviour and peer pressure. A narrator will tell your story while guiding the player through the levels, where the player is the guinea pig . By making choices in the game, the player will transform their body into less or more of an individual [see image below].

 

To make the player aware of their body changing all the time, there are mirrors throughout the whole game which show their reflection.
