[-empyre-] re machine interfaces

i have only been in ephemere rather than osmose.. my most vidid memories of
the piece are physical  ..of having very sore thigh muscles the next day as
i was trying to go faster to see more (you acceletare by squatting) i
had lots of interface problems..my vest wasnt tight enough so my breath
navigation didnt necessarily work..and i was hyperventilating (perhaps one
source of the 'feeling moved" ) and i have a smaller than average head
(what an alarming personal disclosure) and the had to keep hanging onto my
HMD to stop it slipping as i looked around as it wasnt secure either .. i
actually found it very frustrating and much preferred the comfortable video
documentation i had seen rather than the "immersive" experience.

as a person who works in immersve work i really hated to admit that...
