fearless360º developed and produced TWIST360º during Three Dollar Bill Cinema's TWIST film festival. This two day event was the first ever curation/exhibition/discussion around queer VR content.
“Our members have unique identities and diverse relationships to gender and embodiment. By "being another," even for a moment, we explored these identities and our bodies in playful, confusing and even painful ways. Our trans members got the chance to experience, for the first time, what it felt like to live in a cis body. As we synchronized our movements, looked at our new selves in a mirror and felt out our forms, the illusion became so real and we felt comfort and peace.
The experience provided answers to questions for those of us still exploring our identities, simultaneously causing relief and sadness. Some of us were re-embodied in the sorts of bodies we used to have, evoking gender dysphoria when we felt the illusion and dissonance as we distanced ourselves. Each of us came away from the machine with a powerful and meaningful experience, allowing us a novel way to explore our queer identities. As VR technology becomes widespread, more of us will benefit from this type of experience.” -Lion's Main Collective on their experience with The Machine To Be Another
