Ctrl+Neg vr experience. installation. loss exercise.

The CONTROL NEGATIVE experience is an exercise in the loss. Using the techniques of VR, author Monika Masłoń tries to situate the viewer in an emotional state where frustration, helplessness, anger, and sadness are able to reveal basic human assumptions, including the illusory conviction of being fully in control of one's own life. The unreal world of the experience — a negative version of the real world — is a training space where you can better understand yourself and your emotions. The user is guided through seven chapters, which gradually move from physical activity to contemplation.
