Abstract

SIC is an installation built to test if people get spatially disorientated by using spatialized moving sound in combination with physical movement of the body. It is based on the madhouse principle in fun parks but in stead of people seeing a rotating room, they now hear rotating sound while they are blindfolded sitting in a moving chair. According to the test results, SIC is working and so people can get spatially disoriented by sound and movement. This paper will present the research methods and will mention what can be improved and what can be done with this type of disorientation.
