The 1m3 of Human Experiment

Maija Tammi

The 1m3 of Human Experiment is a vivid, claustrophobic, and possibly an occasionally nauseating artwork that examines the problematic separation of mind and body and questions the trustworthiness of our senses. In the work, a human confined in a square box tries to make sense of his world. A cable coming out of his mouth connects him to a simulation surrounding him. The work combines performance, audio, and video art. It is a collaboration between Canadian composer and performer Charles Quevillon and Finnish visual artist Maija Tammi.
