2018 / Germany / 7’35 min / Dialogue anglais

Genre : experimental

Réalisation : The Swan Collective

Production : The Swan Collective

The audience finds itself surrounded by painted architecture, based on digitized acrylic paintings by the artist group ‘The Swan Collective’.

The experience uses Virtual Reality’s power to take over your senses, in order to leave the audience powerless against the doings of a programmer.
