Dear Diary

Dear Diary by Compagnie Voix
Research presentation led by Margherita Bergamo Meneghini

FREE ADMISSION:  25 & 26 March | 10:00 - 13:00, 15:00 - 18:00 | Book your time slot at the Cinedans desk in Eye. Available slots every 30min.

"Dear Diary" is a stereoscopic 360 film and part of the multimedia project "Eve 3.0". "Eve 3.0" is a hybrid performance of live contemporary dance and virtual reality, exploring a multi-sensory illusion of the body in motion. Eve takes participants into an encounter with six characters who have extreme feelings, and encourages the sharing of what a dialogue between bodies can generate. In the film, participants embody the point of view of Eve, in a narrative where they meet a group of teenagers and witness what happens among them due to the presence of a secret diary.

The study that is implemented during the presentation of the VR work "Dear Diary" is meant to observe participants’ reactions in a VR environment, and their sense of embodiment and presence. This study is supported by the research unit Scènes du monde, Edesta Paris 8, Visual, Performing, and Media Arts, University of Bologna and Simon Fraser University’s School of Interactive Arts and Technology in Vancouver, Canada.

The public is invited to actively participate in the research and to contribute to the further development of this VR project.
