Seeing I: an artist will live in a virtual world for 28 days
24th November 2014

Artist Mark Farid plans to give up his lifestyle for a month to live in a virtual reality.

He will stay in a gallery wearing a headset and noise-cancelling headphones to experience as much of the real world as possible.

Within this virtual reality he will experience the audio and video captured by a complete stranger, through an audio and visual feed.

The idea is that he will live in exactly the same way as them during the process, for example, he will eat when they do and sleep when they do.

At the moment he is trying to crowd fund the campaign.
