Experience a standing ovation in VR! You are on a stage in a grand hall, and as the curtain parts, you have to bow and gesture in order to get an audience of 2500 people to applaud, cheer and lose their minds with adoration. Different gestures unlock different responses. CVRTAIN is an experiment trying to see if we can transmit a feeling of love and adoration in a digital environment. IRL, the participant wearing the VR headset is positioned inside of a paper theater. When the curtain parts on the player IRL, the player is “onstage” performing for two audiences at once, one real and one virtual. As a participant you arrive to the event as an audience member and you leave as a star.
