The Skybox Sessions
“The Skybox Sessions” was an interactive installation consisting of three distinct areas, linking physical rooms with virtual chatrooms. Participants can join anonymous chat conversations in each space with their smartphones through given URLs. Throughout the course of an evening, each participant will have passed through each space, constantly adapting new identities through new usernames and props in new environments. 

By creating three very distinct spaces, each equipped with a projection of an anonymous
online chat, I wanted to test the difference the physical set up made on the flow of the digital conversation. I reached out to “Gamers of the West”, a gamer café in Rotterdam
to propose my concept and was then able to start organizing the event using the rooms of the café. By taking elements from online games and implementing them into the space as well as the communication with the participants, I created an interactive storyline. I am able to explore the fluidity of their identity by letting them create new accounts in every space while staying anonymous.
