MYRIAD. Where We Connect. | VR Experience


MYRIAD. Where we connect. | VR Experience is a project about animal migration in the Anthropocene and has crafted a highly artistic and poetic virtual reality experience, based on scientific migratory data, that invites the visitor to experience our world as an interdependent system. We follow the migratory journeys of three animals: The Bald Ibis, the Arctic Fox, and the Green Sea Turtle, along wind and ocean currents, across continents and through soaring mountain ranges as they make their way around the globe. From global to elemental, Myriad includes the science of interconnectedness into an outstanding artistic concept by creating a world out of carbon. Flexible and abundant, carbon is an element that forms the basis of all life on earth. MYRIAD’s visual concept makes use of this building block as a narrative and aesthetic link between individual elements and global networks to show how all life on earth is part of an endlessly connected cycle. Carbon is the main creational and artistic element across all MYRIAD’s formats, generating atmospheres and landscapes, transporting movement and reconfiguring interaction in a constantly changing, living cosmos. Analog charcoal drawings, produced in the studio, are integrated in the digital VR environment and combined with carbon particle systems to form the world of MYRIAD. As they disintegrate and reassemble, they convey a feeling of organic vitality and a unified understanding of a world that is in constant change and in which everything is interconnected. Experiencing natural cycles from an entirely new perspective catalyzes an intuitive, rich understanding of the natural world, while generating a newly responsible attitude towards the impact of human behavior on an individual and global scale. One journey at a time, MYRIAD’s immersive, unique experiences activate individuals’ connection to the world we share and the marvelous beings we share it with.
