Five headsets equipped with olfactory devices. Five connected machines. Five people penetrate into a virtual space and create a forest together through the sheer power of their gaze. Five connected human beings. A collective sensory experience beyond words.
Éden is an interactive and collective sensory experience of nature. Equipped with a VR headset, visitors physically generate rhizomes which, following their gaze, emerge to become plants, trees and flowers. Starting from the premise that art and new technologies can act as a go-between for a new relationship with nature, the designers seek to develop an emotional and cognitive awareness of our need for nature, and of our lack of feeling in its absence.
