Blow Off Your Steam

An augmented reality installation by Jonas Shriqu

This augmented reality installation was based on a holographic office dummy designed to reduce stress and frustration in companies. It allows its users to bend, move or exert other forces on digital images of employees. In this way, employees can let off steam without disturbing other employees.
In the context of the IASpace exhibition, visitors immerse themselves in the working environment of Dave, the protagonist of the film Human Resources. On his worktable, they can maltreat the annoying robots and thus understand Dave’s stress reduction.
