Virtual Bar Buddies is the early iteration of what is now Super Ego Out Loud.
Virtual Bar Buddies is an installation happening in a bar. We asked regulars at a bar if they would be willing to share with us what they are thinking about when sitting at the bar. Twelve revelations are audio taped and played over a video of the participant ‘thinking’.
The video is played back on a 9 x 11 transparent video screen, and the audio is played back on headsets. The installation takes over one table at the bar. The public can sit at that table with the virtual buddies and listen in to their thoughts. A moving piece about what goes on in people’s minds, as they sit at a bar.
Virtual Bar Buddies continues our exploration into how to use digital devices to help build live experiences.
