The aim of this project is to allow participants to reflect on the impact of technological developments on
animal welfare by experiencing the emotional control that industrial livestock may face in the future through VR.
The participants will sit in narrow gestation crates and move the VR view of the pig towards the target in a natural
setting by shaking a cowbell. This will give a sense of the contrast between the natural scene in the VR and the
cramped environment of the real world, allowing one to consider what role technology should play in the future of
livestock breeding and whether it should be used to increase control or improve animal welfare.
