#GetLostInFORESTVR

Forest

Mar 13, 2019

FOREST is an interactive experimental virtual reality experience that invites the user to get lost in a hand-drawn landscape of bristlecone pine trees, sculpted organic matter, and transmuted strains of earthy-electro sounds.

Following a trail of strange plants to the center of a mushroom ring, the viewer is transported into the forest. A timed, music scored, meditative experience begins as the user glides through the virtual space by swinging their arms with touch controllers as if walking. Viewers can move freely in and out of the sculptures and explore spatialized musical elements as they are gently guided through four abstract scenes.
