    • Synopsis
    • The Fifth Sleep is the code name of an experimental medical project. A scientific team has created Proteus, a kind of scanning nano-robot that can be injected into the human body in order to explore a precise part of it. A person that has been in a coma for over a year has been chosen as first patient to test that technology on. It is you who will pilote the entire operation and Proteus, that vessel of a new kind. Its specificity resides in the fact it can destruct itself so as to generate a highly electrical chock. Your goal is to place the explosive device at the core of the sleeping human brain and reanimate the patient using that revolutionary technology before it explodes by itself.
      Intercrossing both video game and cinema fields, The Fifth Sleep is an interactive installation taking the spectator to a deep journey into the more mysterious organ of the human’s body, the brain. The goal of The Fifth Sleep is to create an audiovisual experience in which the spectator is physically as much solicited as they are intellectually. Enhance with Head Mounted Display, it offers a full insight into fictional reality and a strong emotional implication. As it is a private experience, it starts to rhymes with intimacy, and then becomes a unique and personal view of mental imagery. Being an active part of the narrative, the spectator is indeed asked to re-think their relationship status with virtual imagery, changing their whole conception of what seeing a movie at the theatre can usually imply.
