Body Swap

An installation that promotes respect, understanding and mutual agreement.

Through a series of body interaction protocols, the Body Swap installation allows two users to exchange perspective and body.

Apart from being a playful, friendly and familiar experience that makes us reflect on our bodies, the Body Swap also works as a research platform for queer theories and theories of gender,  mindfulness,  and many other topics related to the proprioception of the body.

The experience last from 10 – 15 minutes approximately and it consists of users’ interactions between them and with assistants; we use different multi-sensory feedback including mirrors to reinforce the illusion. After the users have accepted this new body of their own, the experience culminates when users can see themselves from the perspective of the other.

Back in 2014 and in the beginnings of the research, BeAnotherLab decided to explore the possibilities of mutual interaction between a pair of users

It was the first time that a swap experience was proposed with an intention of promotion mutual respect and addressing deep reflection on mutual agreement and gender violence.

The video got a huge impact on the press and social media, reaching 3.5 million visits.
