180 VR video, 3D audio, Oculus Quest, spherical fabric play area
This project invites participants to forge new relationships with waterways. Viewers are presented with an immersive video and audio experience representing the multifold impact humans have on the environment and push against water as a mere commodity. By placing viewers inside the current, they can see, hear, and feel our entangled and vital connection to this life force.
This work was produced along the Chicago River and Goose Island. Future iterations will feature other waterways and river systems nationally and globally.
