Prometheus the Fire-Bringer

Outdoor VR Installation

VR 3D 180

Year of production: 2023

Total duration: 27 min

This is a outdoor VR installation and the final chapter of Merio Koizumi’s “Prometheus Trilogy”. The story, which is told in a poetic tone, is a mythical story of humans to become entirely different beings through a small bio-technological operation. To tell this mythical story in the an effective way, Koizumi uses VR technology, which allows to blur the outlines of the body, and tricks the brain into feeling that one is living among a collective body consisting of many other bodies.

6 audiences can experience the work at the same time. Each audience with Head Mount Display experiences VR individually, either in indoor tents or at outside park in a semi-public space.
