In My Shoes: Intimacy is a 360-degree experience which explores the power of human connection. Put aside your inhibitions, sit down with a partner and look into their eyes. Let these strangers guide you through their impromptu, unconventional and intense moments of intimacy through virtual reality.
Intimacy is a first-person documentary designed for two people to experience three encounters from six very different perspectives. It tells the stories of two strangers, two comrades and two lovers. It explores the importance of intimacy in survival, relationships and sexuality from a first-person perspective.
Intimacy forms part of In My Shoes, an internationally-recognised empathy project. In My Shoes is an ever-expanding collection of first person, documentary style interactive performances, which guide participants through the beautiful, the challenging, the mundane and the surreal aspects of being human.
In My Shoes is a fusion of documentary, education and theatre. Find out more about this artwork, showing as part of Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art, 6 April to 30 June 2019, Latrobe Regional Gallery (Morwell, VIC)
