Different from What We Are 

Commissioned by Eclipse and ARC as part of Slate: Black. Arts. World

Different from What We Are is a Virtual Reality (VR) experience describing the other, the alien in detail, the fears, the hatred and the hopes of our diverse community creating a discourse of difference.

A VR world will be created responding to collected narratives, allowing us to enter into some of the darkest fears and strongest hope of our time, turning the audience into participants, owning the experience they are viewing, allowing them to step into the shoes of another. These encounters will be uncomfortable, destabilising and difficult for the conscience led.

Key dates:
Sharing at ARC week commencing 26 Nov, date and time to be confirmed.
