About
US PREMIERE!
Be Boy Be Girl is a multisensory experiment that engages sight, hearing, touch, and smell. In the experience, your body becomes more than just your eyes and ears, it becomes a vehicle to experience and challenge reality. The shooting of the 360-degree 3D film material took place on Hawaii and was filmed with 16 cameras on a self-built rig. This camera rig was placed on top of the heads of several men and women to re-create the same perspective the viewer will have in the installation. The omni audio, which changes perspective while the viewer turns his or her head, was specially created for the installation. In the installation, all of the senses are activated through a combination of smell, touch (via infrared light and a fan), image (360-degree 3D film glasses), and omni sound.
