What does it mean to have a hyperbody? How does it feel? And which new interactions with each other open up through our hyperbodies? In this collaborative project with Kimberly Lin, I explored possible interactions with the physicality and digitality of our online bodies.
In a first experiment, we deconstructed online pictures of ourselves to binary code: our digital bodies became physical on cardboard and clay.
We digitalized these physical code tablets containing our hyper-bodies and and let people interact with matched physical and digital versions of them in VR.
In a final iteration on hyper-bodies users can visually stream the raw image code of a remote video connection through their own digital body. Think of a Matrix-style version of FaceTime.
