Synesthesia Suit: Rez Infinite and Crystal Vibes


Institute History

  • 2017 Sundance Film Festival


Stepping into the media lab of the Keio University Graduate School of Media Design’s Embodied Media Project is like stepping into the story world of Ready Player One. The lab’s collaboration with Rez Infinite’s creative director, Tetsuya Mizuguchi, and Rhizomatiks presents their research project, Synesthesia Suit—a full bodysuit of 26 sensors designed to integrate the entire body into a multisensory VR experience. Wear it to play the Rez Infinite video game, and experience the psychedelic VR project Crystal Vibes.

While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
