VR Sound and video
Utilizing 360 spatial sound and video, “Dwelling in the Enfolding” is an interactive, responsive virtual reality piece that invites viewers to inhabit enfolding landscapes and bridge across seemingly disparate spaces that belong to a unified whole. Surrounded by the glacial landscape of south-central Alaska, viewers can move between the layers of the world, navigating through a liminal map of the terrain. Whether standing on top of a vast ice field or deep in a mysterious ice cave, within each layer, participants encounter and interact with distinct audio-visual experiences that offer new ways to perceive the interconnecting glacial landscapes.
