G-Man situationist mirror, interactive installation, 2014
Installation developed in co production with M2F Créations - Lab GAMERZ.

Quentin Destieu and Bastien Vacherand’s G-Man le miroir situationniste combines virtual reality (via Oculus Rift), Guy Debord, and Half-Life. This interactive installation allows visitors to perform through the avatar “body” of the G Man, a popular character from Valve’s Half-Life game. The installation is meant to “free the individual from the constraints of passive leisure, transforming the gamer into an artist”. The simulation becomes a creative mirror that “acquies a life of its own”.

Inspired by the writings of the Situationist International, G-Man le miroir situationniste was developed at the Lab GAMERZ d’ Aix-en-Provence, France.
