Does your soul want to see the world from God’s perspective? Let your soul
wander around in this out-of-body experience for an
audience of one. Theater performance by two actors applying immersion
“God Sees” is an interactive multimedia out-of-body-experience for an
audience of one. The single visitor sees the play through a set of head-mounted
video glasses. The sourrounding world is recorded by a small wireless camera.
The perspective of the camera gives the spectator an immersive view,
experiencing the world through the senses of a small "human-robotic" avatar.
An interactive theater play starts. First, the soul of the spectactor is
metaphorically leaving his body and wanders
around. What happens next is up to the visitor, guiding his soul and
interacting with the environment. Once the soul has reached a higher plane,
God appears in the figure of a symbolical Jesus. A crucial decision has to be made to
drink water of life offered by the Savior himself. A possible end of the
play is to see the world from God’s perspective - from above. The play is
narrated by music, a recorded voice, and two live actors.
