Our growing isolation and deprivation of physical presence in the Covid-19 era also lead to our further retreat to digital realities. On Zoom and various social media, we find ourselves shuttling between virtual and physical realities, comprehending new metaphors, gestures and idioms. We often see people playing in Virtual Reality (VR) and tell ourselves, “what a great time they’re having!” We are unaware of the world shielded from VR and what happens from moment to moment in the actual out there. In The Skin of Our Sheath, two very different observable stories take place at the same time, juxtaposed on the same screen -- a VR environment and the performance outside the VR that generates it -- to show that understanding and playing with perceptions are different. Viewers now see every “stroke” in the creative process that makes the 3D VR.
