Phantasm Atlas is an interactive video installation reimagining our bodily anatomy. In this installation-performance, participants wear a silicone sleeve and steer through an Atlas Scan of their body, without the hassle of outdated imaging technology or dissection. To navigate through the experience, users hit the pods on the wearable, and they softly glow in response (or is it in protest?). This project begins as a diagrammatic journey, but becomes an expressive meditation on the structures that quietly restrict the autonomy of certain bodies, while framing radical re-imagination as a way to set us free.
