The immersive spatial installation “Haptic Field (v2.0)” is a multisensory experience in which touch, sight and listening fuse into a holistic experience. First, the visitors dress in overalls specially designed by JNBY, whose semi-transparent hoods obscure their view, while integrated sensors and vibrating actuators convey intense sensory impressions; a hallucinatory and dreamlike environment is created, in which everything is in motion. The participants are guided through the rooms by the moving vibrations pulsing through the clothes as well as shimmering light and darkness. The visitors’ fixation on the sense of sight becomes secondary, space begins to dissolve and their perception of their own physical boundaries becomes blurred. Perhaps this was how life felt before the mirror stage?
