THE FOREST INHALES YOU – Immersive VR Projection Art Installation at PLAYTOPIA 2019
A collaborative immersive virtual and reality experience…
Slowly I followed the sounds of breathing that I could perceive in the distance.
Carefully listening to the frequency of each breath, it seemed as though I drew closer. So close, they escaped my own chest.
When a tremor suddenly moved through me; virtually shook me.
I wanted to hold on, yet my hand could not.
And then they were back: sounds of breathing. Deep and immersive.
All was gently led by an unfathomable flow. An ancient rhythm of arising and ceasing.
Our collaboration is representing a confluence of human and nature. The dissolution of the physical borders will be conveyed and the artwork is guided by the intention of connection. We wish the viewer to slow down, turn inward and have the perception of Self as form be deeply affected. Our installation is a gentle reminder of our interconnection beyond a permanence of form.
