Made with Amaury La Burthe and other key collaborators on Notes on Blindness: Into Darkness, Unrest VR is an expansion piece to Jennifer Brea’s feature documentary of the same name, which is also screening here at 15:10 on Sun 22 Oct.
It is an interactive non-fiction VR experience inspired by Jennifer Brea’s documentary and is an immersive journey into Jen’s experience of an invisible illness: Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, otherwise known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Contrasting the painful solitary confinement of a bedroom world with the kinetic freedom of an inner dreamscape, it asks you to consider where you go when you’re too sick to leave your bed?
As this is a single viewing experience there are just 12 opportunities to book a slot throughout the day.
Lying on a twin-size bed kitted out with haptic feedback, the installation uses Oculus Rift headsets and touch controllers, plus there will also be some optional physical accessories!
Please note: The sessions are for one person at a time and run every 30mins from 11:30 until 14:30 and from 17:30 until 19:30
