On the Eve of Our Last Winter
Lyrical Dystopian Mixed-Reality Digital Story
(Work in Progress)
On The Eve of Our Last Winter is a mixed-reality multimodal story. This project uses virtual environment, spoken word, text, poetry, music, soundscape, brainwave entrainment, and autonomous sensory meridian response triggers to explore the theme of elemental winter. It is an immersive emotional experience that leads the player/reader on a journey through the cold places of our world. It draws on archetypes found in arctic myths and contemplates climate change and personal survival.
In September 2019 I will take part in The Arctic Circle arts and sciences residency to research and gather photographic material for this project.
