The Hangman at Home - VR (single user experience)

“What does the hangman think about when he goes home at night from work?” Inspired by the 1922 Carl Sandburg poem of the same title, this VR single-user immersive experience explores themes of acknowledgement and participation. It is not about hanging people, but about the awkward intimacy that comes with being human, and the connection between spectator, witness, and accomplice. The animated, interactive experience invites you into five interwoven stories, capturing pivotal moments in people’s lives. The Hangman at Home – VR ultimately reveals that we are all more alike than different, while raising questions of responsibility. The experience begins with a call to action, as the user is asked to light a match to ignite the narrative. This non-linear, layered story is both interactive and observational. Users are given the choice to cross different thresholds, such as a door, a window, or a fireplace; each is a portal to a room where one of the five animated scenes unfolds. Eventually they have the opportunity to interact with objects that are extracted from these stories, to engage and create a soundscape. Finally, they are invited to take part in the poetic climax of this thoughtful, often playful, journey.

We are at Home (multiuser experience)

“What does the hangman think about when he goes home at night from work?” We Are at Home is an immersive experience that explores themes of acknowledgement and participation, as well as the awkward intimacy that comes with being human.This unique animated interactive work is a bridge between the digital, performing and visual arts, incorporating the latest innovative technology. At its core is the connection between spectator, witness and accomplice. Participants are invited into a series of stories and rooms. As part of a shared experience, they will question their own accountability and the role of the individual within the collective. The concept of home is the key—you are home, but it is not your home. The notion of returning home to the forced intimacy of a hybrid space that’s both public and domestic allows us to transcend the narrative and character-driven dramaturgy.
