Fly Simulator is a VR software specifically developed for Speculum Artium in Trbovlje and also shown at Ars Electronica 2018. It is a simulation of a few thousand flies that organize

themselves into swarms, creating interesting patterns when users wear the 3D head set. The user´s head position influences the swarming of the flies and as the virtual space is based on a non-Carthesian world with unusual perspectives and timing, the user feels immersed in a strange world where she feels like she has become a fly herself.
