(Multiplayer 6 DoF VR, Installation)

We are constantly creating a story about ourselves. The same thing happens when we meet an Other. We are on the bounce loop. “Ocean”, inspired by “Solaris” by Stanisław Lem, is a VR exercise in searching for connections and it is a reflection on  the inability to make contact, to understand another.



“an unreliable narrator”, inability to connect, failure, limitations, aspects of the human condition
