A poetic narrative generated by your own body, The Introspection Game sends you to a journey within, using Oculus Rift, a breath sensor, and a pulse sensor.
Participants are invited into an empty room one at time, wearing a breath sensor waistband, a pulse sensor, and an Oculus 3D head-mount. Once the Virtual Reality experience starts, the participant is temporarily teleported into a virtual space resembling the actual room he/she sits in.
Depending on the breathing pattern, the participant gradually descends upon a land surrounded by infinite ocean. As breaths become ocean waves, heart beats become both audible and visible, the participants gradually start to direct their attention inwards, becoming aware of less obvious body senses.
