Synopsis Bad Trip is an immersive interactive installation that enables people to navigate the creator’s mind using a game controller.
Since November 2011, every moments of his life has been documented by a video camera mounted on glasses, producing an expanding database of digitalized visual memories. Using a custom virtual reality software, he created a virtual mindscape where people could navigate, and experience his memories and dreams.

The virtual world is perpetually evolving as he loads fresh digital memories every night.
