The virtual reality animation displays a dying swan. The body of the swan is shaking and fighting. Besides the tremor and trembling caused by the nervous system when it dies, I am interested in the similarities between spasm, devotion and death which the animation join into the same motion and sound. Within the virtual space, the physical dimension is suspended and transformed into a realistic situation where the viewer is able to observe the movements of the swan from all angles and pass through bodily space and death. You are released from the physical where others can see you, but you cannot see them.
