Flexible Schedule is a Virual Reality installation custom made for an arts admin office (here at Atelier Nord, Oslo).
A series of goopy, tactile sculptures (metal, fake leather, cast silicon with pigment) are mirrored as furnishings in the virtual version of the office and visitors are encouraged to touch. The virtual version is based on game aesthetics and has some gaming elements. It has a very fast (2 min) day-night cycle and objects that react to proximity.
A voice over with commands that sometimes are actual and sometimes not guide you through the experience of being at work and possibly not achieving anything
