An art installation aptly titled, “The Machine to be Another” uses virtual reality technology to allow people to experience the first person perspective of another human—in this instance a man and a woman. Participants synchronize their movements to enhance the idea of an identity change. For example, a normally barrel chested man runs his hands down his hairy chest while a svelte woman across the room does the same—each seeing the other’s perspective. For a closer look check out the short video detailing some of the participants’ experiences with a few slightly NSFW moments.
