|Indigestion is conceived in two parts: the interactive video and a virtual environment. In an adjoining space, one participant using a motion-sensing device, can navigate through the computer generated, magnified space of the same dinner table. This virtual view will be projected in real time and in 3-dimensions, for multiple viewers wearing stereoscopic glasses. The image will be split onto two large screens on opposite sides of the room, analogous to a car's front and rear windshield. The perception of moving forward on one screen appears as moving away from on the other.|
The table will be a forensic surface. Using a point and click feature on the navigation device, the viewer can monitor the changing level of the wine bottle, the quantity of refills and level of sobriety of any character, the spectrographic readings of the narcotic as it takes effect, or the running caloric and cholesterol count of each character. The table will also tell a story of its own fabrication: the candles melt down, leaving only their wire frame, the wine glass falls and disengages its texture map...
The two modes of "Indigestion," the interactive video and the virtual
environment, each privilege a different aspect of the same event, but the
two are not cumulative. Rather, they produce conflictual narratives that
remain "indigestible," unable to close.
