“Strange World: Immersive Experience Through Interaction and Projection Mapping” is an MFA Thesis Project that focuses on immersion through direct participation and explores possible expansions of affordances of projection mapping as an artistic medium. In this project, videos of personal experiences of isolation and gradual emergence of a sense of community in unknown environments with cultural differences are implemented in surrealistic style. These videos create a 180-degree projection mapping art, making multiple videos that reflect various personal experiences merged into one virtual space. This virtual space tries to convey the message that we need understanding and empathy for each other. The thesis project also includes experiments with interactive video aiming to engage the audience more actively. The thesis project explores options for implementing immersive experiences in a transitional period of digital innovation, where advanced technologies move into different fields and converge into new forms of expression.
