location: V2_Lab, MEET, Espronceda, Ars Electronica

Oxytocina Machina is a VR project developed by a multidisciplinary and transnational team of Studio VRij (Sammie de Vries, Mila Moleman), Mathieu Preux, Lucia Redondo, and Zalán Szakács. It is an extraordinary, shared experience that blurs the lines between reality and VR, exploring a virtual connection between strangers, who are in reality separated by a thousand miles. During the experience people who have never met develop a deep connection and release the love hormone oxytocin by playing, moving and sharing.

The installation will take place during the Ars Electronica Festival and contemporaneoulsy in 3 other venues, allowing people from different countries to encounter each other’s in the virtual world.
