Room Tour

Abstract:
“Broadcast Yourself” has become the theme for a generation of users, that willingly reveal private information about their lives. The term “Room Tour” typed into the search field of youtube results in about 217 000 search result. These videos show tours that people have recorded through their rooms, drawing on a vocabulary that is known from shopping channels descriptions. “Room Tours” are mostly performed by young girls, their rooms are rather uniform, the pre-cut habitat-templates from marketing campaigns are reproduced. Three of these standardized rooms have here been precisely recreated in 3D program “Sweet Home 3D”. By the use of the 3D graphics every trace of human touch is cleared out of the interior spaces and continued as a virtual simulation of the girl’s room. The videos have then again been uploaded on Youtube.
