The Living dead

The living dead - a multi sensory installation


"Caught in the fabric of the world, my body is a thing among things"

Maurice Merleau-Ponty


With a loud bang, Rose falls on the black ground. She can’t sit up. She is paralyzed on the floor and her face has become strangely expressionless. She can no longer control her voice, which becomes spooky and flat: "Something terrible has happened. I can no longer feel my body…” The “Living Dead” is an intimate experience based on true stories of people who feel that they don’t exist. This multi-sensory installation uses wearables, sound, smell and virtual reality to immerse you in their story. In this journey we see a glimpse of how their brains may be the key to unlock the mysteries of human consciousness.
