XBPMMM – A Travelogue of Morphing Bodies

XBPMMM: A Travelogue of Morphing Bodies is an interactive extended VR installation that discusses body normativity and discipline in a society premised on exploitation and meritocracy. The game immerses players in different worlds, each designed to embody mechanisms and generate questions around the measurement, quantification, optimisation and mechanization of social bodies. Finding themselves in a constant state of transfiguration, conditioned by oscillating levels of movement and constraint, players are prompted to reflect on their own bodily perception, social experience and feeling of agency. As a hybrid art format and multiplayer game, the project contributes towards research that circuits digital technology and performance to enable social interaction and collective experience.
