Self vs Other
Exploring the agency and influence that the philosophical existential “other” exerts on our private thoughts.
Project Summation

The Self vs Other installation incorporates user-submitted anonymous thoughts that are attached to participants in 3D space through projection mapping.

The thoughts are randomly assigned to participants from a collection stored in the website’s database as they interact with the piece by walking through the mapped space.

We were particularly inspired by the existential works of Sartre and Camus and their examination of the self vs the other -- specifically the influence that others have on the individual sense of identity.

Is it even worth it?

That's bullshit. If that's true then life is just an arbitrary search for meaning.

Gotta go faster. Much, much faster.
