Description:
The Captured experience takes place in two interconnected screen spaces. At the first part, your face is digitally captured and rendered into the virtual world. Your new appearance is assembled by white figure who is gently attaching your face into a body randomly selected for you. You have no control over your newborn doubles identity and gestures, it has become a member in the captured community and behaves according to the collective intelligence. Your double is pushed deeper into the virtual world and appears again in the second phase of the experience, where all the previously captured doubles are actors/agents in a narrative simulation. The simulation cycles between two states: Segregation, which takes shape as bullying and humiliation of one colour group among the doubles; and its opposite, Wandering, depicting doubles as walking together, each searching for a companion among them. The transition between states is initiated by a special double, called Gamechanger, who has the ability to change the course of narrative by directly affecting the behaviour of other Avatars. Social pressure is transmitted to you and other people watching their doubles together. How the behaviour of the virtual collective affects the relationships in the audience, in the real world?
