Event with live action and 4-channel surround-sound audio for single voluntary participants, nude, alone and blind, in a direct confrontation with actual vs. recorded voice in a completely dark, 5-star luxury hotel suite stripped of furniture.
All clothing and possessions given to a uniformed guard stationed at the suite entrance.
Rendered blind and vulnerable — by choice.
The surround sound constantly changes, making the suite seem to fluctuate between a large hall and a smaller, intimate space, making echolocation impossible.
And then — were they really alone?
