A VRChat world where a virtual player blends in


Natsuki Ito

This artwork is a VRChat world that focuses on the amplified distrust in communication between avatars that may occur in the near future metaverse. By participating in this world as a VRChat user, the experiencer encounters a situation in which it is difficult to distinguish between the player and NPC (non-player character). The experience was realized by integrating various elements, such as the implementation of pseudo-speech interaction using the avatar’s built-in shaders (at this time, the SDK for VRChat world development does not implement player voice acquisition), the construction of the world view, the design of the avatar that fits into the world view, and the placement of the pedestal that encourages the wearing of the avatar.
