VR Magic Carpets

Brian Fuata in Latai Taumoepeau's LAU MANU (2021)

360 VR tests with Carlos Gomes (Theatre Kantanka) supported by Create NSW 360 Vision to experiment with VR in the doco-animation form, researching different recollections and experiences of migrants and stories of their children, one generation on.  We are developing a model for working with different communities based on written stories from participants which are then interpreted through superimpositions of drawings over recorded 360 video spaces - a transposition of the sensory memory onto the present. Similar to the three year Hyperreal Tales project at Bundanon in 2014, this is the prototype for community research and transformation through animated realities in VR. More coming soon in 2020-21!
