Transcendenz

Reality is perception.  Perception is made from the sum of our experiences filtered through our current bodily state.  Augmented reality can change perception by showing you a different world than the one expected.  Yes, we can gorge ourselves on Disney escapes or fetish porn, but Michael Harboun takes us on a journey to the transcendent side of AR.

Transcendenz from Michaël Harboun on Vimeo.

This is Michael’s take on his video:

In a world in which we are constantly bombarded with injunctions to react or to distract ourselves it gets scarcely possible in our everyday life to dwell upon the essential, the existential, the metaphysical…

Transcendenz offers to connect our everyday life to an invisible reality, the one of ideas, concepts and philosophical questionings which the world is full of but that our eyes cant’ see. By bringing together the concepts of augmented/altered reality, Brain Computer Interface (BCI) and social networks, Transcendenz offers to live immersive philosophical experiences.

Through meditation, users access the world of Interconsciousness, a white and silent universe in which they can connect themselves to the metaphysical experiences. These experiences transform our perception of the world and reveal an unseen philosophy.

Transcendenz also enables us to access the knowledge of history’s great philosophers, who, since antiquity, try to answer the question: “Why is there something, if there could be nothing?”
