How do we navigate social boundaries, and how do they shape who we are?
What choices do we make when interacting with others,
and how does that affect our intimacy with each other?
Explore the nuances of social boundaries with Comfort Zone, a new participatory installation which integrates choreography into a virtual, interactive experience, exploring themes of group dynamics, choice, and social boundaries.
Comfort Zone will debut October 22, 2013, in the Black Box in the museum’s West Gallery, a space devoted to experimenting with social interaction and exploring the interplay between science, society, and culture.
"At the center of the experience is a virtual, responsive “avatar” which interacts with visitors through movement, encouraging them to investigate choice in social situations. The 10-minute exhibit cycle will lead visitors through stages of interaction, from connecting with the game’s avatar to cooperating with other visitors in the room to create movements and shapes together, collectively and playfully exploring the edges of each participant’s comfort zone."
