[ISEA2023] Paper: Rémi Sagot-Duvauroux, Nils Quaetaert, François Garnier & Rémi Ronfard — The Hitchcock Experience: a Spatial Montage project


Full Paper. Theme Immersion(s) Subtheme Symbiotic Imaginaries

Our research-creation project explores a practice of montage in room scale VR. We invited users to live an immersive version of the plane sequence in Alfred Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest”. We propose a montage that adapts in real time to the displacements of the body and gaze of the spectator, creating a new dialectic between narrative and body rhythms.
