Temporal World: A Haptisonic Virtual Reality Memory World
“Temporal World” is a haptisonic VR experience in which artist Chloé Lee reflects on making meaning in places with varying levels of connection to her; from the personal to the familial to the foreign. We are guided to slow down while exploring Berlin and beyond in our increasingly accelerated time. As an Asian-American artist, she explores themes of migration through discovery, documentation and, in time, rooting herself in a new place.
This VR world emphasizes the ephemerality of memory and learning to sense in new ways. These new ways of sensing, and in turn understanding, help create a more nuanced understanding of our interactions and, often invisible, dynamics within our environments.
