Mark Farid’s ‘Seeing I’

On the subject of virtual reality, London based artist Mark is testing the waters in a month long bid to experience life from another person’s point of view. For 28 days, He will be immersed in the daily life of a complete stranger, only known to him as ‘input’. Every aspect of the inputs life will be relayed to Mark, including showering, sleeping, going to the toilet, going to work, even sex…

It’s not set to take place until the summer of 2015.

MF: “I see who we are as a construct of society and want to find out to what extent it’s possible to lose the sense of one’s self, myself”
