Locked into a transparent cube that contains nothing but a fridge and a few angular objects, a skinny woman is confronted with an enemy: the soft, undefined form. It arrives in the shape of a chicken egg that the woman is supposed to eat, because that’s what her diet plan which commands her to gain weight says. The egg provokes desire and panic at the same time. Eating it is nothing less than the worst case scenario.

We’re on the outskirts of a city – whether of the past or future is irrelevant. Despite the freezing cold a crowd of onlookers is slowly gathering. There’s a strange calm. Snow is falling silently, only the crows can be heard. What is there to see? What does it have to do with me? Michelle and Uri Kranot and a big team have explored the possibilities of Virtual Reality in this immersive project, for the disturbing theme “called for a form that involved the audience more”.
