Self Simulator (2009)

“Finally it's here! Don't miss this unique opportunity to experience yourself, being you! See yourself walk and talk or interact with everyday objects - or how about watching yourself enjoying masterworks of art? Only reality sets the limits! The Self Simulator - as real as it gets!”

 

The Self Simulator is a construction that enables you to move around while watching yourself from behind or from the view of a surveillance camera. It turns the idea of virtual reality upside down, making reality virtual – also sound-wise by adding artificially sounding reverberation. In doing so, the Self Simulator confronts us with ourselves through alienation and therefore aims to, among other things, make us reorientate and experiment with even the simplest of everyday actions.
