The Scream Room functions as a vent for pent-up emotions that are usually repressed within the public affairs of the city. In the soundproof room, a livestream projection shows the view from a mountain in the vicinity of Innsbruck. The screams were recorded in the Scream Room and could promptly be heard on the top of the mountain through speakers. This virtual mountaintop experience, combined with the illusion of a complete change of location, gives city-dwellers not only an opportunity to let their emotions run freely, but also the possibility of a moment's escape from the events of city life, without actually leaving the city at all.
