A VR world created for Oculus Rift with real-time streams of speech and text. Depending on the sentiment that is extracted from the stream of text, the world abruptly becomes bright and chaotic or dark and slow. The overall effect is a feeling of phenomenal emergence, with vast implications to be further explored across multiple domains. We hope to develop upon this framework to explore social, industrial, artistic, and metaphysical experiments in the near future.
The Sixth Eyesland is a collaboration between Columbia’s Department of Computer Science + Parsons’ School of Art, Media, and Technology.
