"Human Trials" is a unique virtual reality psychodrama in which duplicitous characters try to disempower a human participant on a journey to the "liminal portal of the unconscious" in a quest for her "Heart's Desire."

The project is the work of an interdisciplinary team of media artists, computer scientists and dramatists at the University at Buffalo.

It will be presented in its entirety for the first time as part of the city's largest culture jam, the 2006 Buffalo Infringement Festival: "Ten Days of Art Under the Radar."

It will be presented in Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, located in The Church, 341 Delaware Ave., July 27-28 and August 3-5 at a time to be announced.
