You can go experience our project between 2:30pm to 4:30pm everyday at the HUMAN+ Show at the Museum. Why its only open for 2 hours? Its is because the installation requires gallery sitters to help you with the VR headsets.
The user plays as LUMI, an under-utilized robot room assistant. Although LUMI can perform 120 tasks, LUMI’s current user (played by yours truly) has disabled most of its functions and only use it to turn the lights on and off.
So basically, you play as an AI to turn my room lights on and off while creepily watching me in my room. You can choose to obey to me or not. For example: Turning the lights off while I’m having a shower will lead to a hilarious out-come of me coming out the shower with shampoo in my hair.
We shot everything in my room at home, which really saved us a tonne of time because we didn’t need to scout for locations or travel at all; we only had 48 hours from the start to the finish. I’m quite proud of what we done.
