Prototype: Alone Together
Alone Together is a prototype developed as part of the UK-Canada Immersive Exchange.
ALONE TOGETHER is the story of a fake family member meeting lonely clients by appointment. This self-generated performance combines augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and hologram production. It mixes them with theatrical storytelling and user interactions.
Inspired by the concept of family rental agencies that provide fake family members to lonely people seeking companionship, Alone Together offers surprising, seemingly spontaneous narratives. Brief yet emotionally arresting, innovative yet oddly familiar, it is accessible and inclusive in ways that traditional culture sometimes fails to be.
