Kefitzat Haderech (Leap of Faith) is a Sisyphean journey in virtual reality. It is both physical and interactive and takes place on the level of macro and micro, inside our heads and in the ambient surrounding. The work offers a journey between East and West, gravitating on a spectrum between the actual and conceptual: between sense perceptions of smell, vision and other sensations through to culture and ideas, concepts and symbols.
East and West can appear to be far removed and diametrically opposed. In the interactive surrounding designed by multimedia developers Ziv Barcesat and Omri Daviv, the two ends turn out to be at great proximity.
