Rubber hand illusion – remapping body sensation
Watch how you can trick your brain by stroking a fake rubber hand and your real hand at the same time. Link from New Scientist online
I’ll be working on presenting this illusion at the Bundanon workshop! I think it opens the door for all sorts of poetic body transformation – wondering how we could include some more subtle/imaginative body metamorphoses… some research has been done on virtual/mixed reality displays and this sort of re-mapping of bodyimage – I’ll follow up soon.
