Da Bear (2006)

This website is part of a recent installation about interface and intimacy. A huge stuffed bear sculpture has a joystick for the user to navigate an image of his dream girl, lying in a 'magic eye' field of flowers. The website, which was projected on the wall facing the bear, displays the beginnings of this huge, life-size naked girl, laying horizontally in the virtual space that outgrows the screen’s dimensions. Just her feet poke out from the rectangle of the screen, and by using the scrollbars, the user can explore her full length, piece by piece. The flipside (when one clicks her body) is where his fantasy resides. Every piece of this fabricated nature is from google image search.
