One and Dream Chairs
Project by Becky Kazansky,Catherine McCurry, Rong Yong.
Animation by Becky Kazansky.
One And Dream Chairs is an installation consisting of a chair that transports the sitter to a peaceful place. A live video feed shows the sitter an image of themselves sitting in the chair as they transform into a tree.
Sitting down activates a pressure sensor. Placing arms on armrests activates two capacitive sensors. Layered over the sitter is an animation of the chair turning into a tree and an audio track of ambient, forest sounds.
The result is the dissociative or transporting experience of watching yourself turn into something else.
