Psychotik Room is an interactive installation in which the viewer is immersed in a psychiatric isolation room with head mounted display. By dint of magnetic motion sensors and heartbeats sensor, the 3D environment and sound are modified in real time. This installation questions relationship between new media‘s immersion, and social isolation of the individual. Thus underlining the frailty of human body confronted with today’s world, in a sterile hospital universe, out of reality, referring to the horror film’s aesthetic. This installation offers to the viewer a moment of deep closeness and meditation, in a 3D universe modified under corporal pressures which may cause claustrophobia feelings.

Psychotik Room (V2) has been developped during an artistic residence in ECM Kawenga in Montpellier (France), in March 2009, with a financial grant for multimedia creation from the Region of Languedoc- Roussillon.
