VR installation (2019)

Numbers and graphs are the essence of most scientific papers. They try to describe the world, facts, and problems. Microplastics are one of these problems. This artistic research is an example of how people could literally be put in these graphs. Look at the real problem particle in this particle system. The design of experimental research set up to experience the hyperobject in virtual reality. Experiments on the scale in virtual reality and about connections in virtual space.
