In Bridge, two small, physical pyramids become an entry point into a virtual space, where they stand in stark contrast to a digitally rendered sphere. The sphere can be rotated and manipulated with the movements of the viewer’s hands as they interact with the pyramidal structures, thereby establishing a bridge between two worlds. The sharp nature of the physical structures creates a phantom sensation in relation to the viewer’s hands. Viewers are made to question their relationship to the objects before them; a sharp object moves a round ball, a physical gesture moves a virtual space. How this transaction occurs is left unanswered for the viewer to discern as they begin to negotiate these spatial relationships and challenge the notion of what constitutes a technological experience.
Is this how we feel the virtual?
