‘Bump!’ is one of the five workshops that was organized for the project ‘Ferris Wheel’, which aimed to share practical knowledge and insightful values within the theme of ‘technocracy’.
‘Bump!’ is a VR Game Workshop that gives digital censorship a physical shape, allowing the possibility to fully sense and tangibly understand the effects of propaganda and censorship. In the first session, participants play a multiplayer game where the path of the participant using the VR headset is physically blocked or opened intentionally by the oppoenent’s bodies. This repetitive situation leads to a constant change of route and ultimately the alteration of one’s original destination, mirroring the manipulation caused by the strict control of accessibility through propaganda and censorship.
In the next session, artists and participants look into the mechanism, discuss the necessity, and brainstorm alternative online censorship and propanganda systems.
