Remembering is an abstract VR experience about being born.
Remembering tells a story through sound, music and abstract shapes. It is a slow-paced, poetic journey about the beauty of conception and the trauma of being born.
By building a world based on sound instead of visuals we have created a place that relies on association rather than observation. During this almost lucid dream-like experience, you have limited control, and your gaze controls what you hear.
Part experiment, part art project, with Remembering we are researching the physical connotations and impact of sound in VR. Embodiment, or the sense of physically being somewhere, can be heavily influenced by sound. By connecting associative sounds to various forms of physical impact, we explore how sound can play a bigger role in the sense of being ‘here’.
