Embodied Violence in Film

Bryan Hsu

Embody the physical violence depicted in a film.



Violence has been present in films for decades. The audience reactions to these violent depictions in film range from pained empathy to complete desensitization. This interactive piece aims to see if an added interaction of mimicking the violence on screen further enhances the audience's empathy towards these fictional victims. Conversely, does it unleash the hidden desires of an individual to further inflict damage on to others? Or perhaps neither.
