Cinema 3. (360G-Wellcome-096590_Z_11_Z)

Cinema 3 will be an immersive art installation that induces an out-of-body experience in the viewer. The work will be presented in a specially designed exhibition environment, in which viewers watch live 3-Dimensional video footage of themselves on a screen as they appear to ascend from the ground and fly through the air, and at the same time feel as though they are floating. Developed from Professor Olaf Blanke's groundbreaking experiments, which have shown that, using closed-circuit 3-D video, sensory perception can be re-organised to induce a measurable 'out-of-body experience' (Lenggenhager et al., Science 2007, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17717189), Cinema 3 will enable audiences to experience a unique sense of disembodiment. The installation will bring to life this area of research for a broad audience, and will connect the neurological study of the body's perception of its location with the cinematic experience, particularly in relation to the creation of new relationships between viewer and screen enabled by 3-D and interactive technologies.
