I U WE is a Virtual and Augmented Reality ritual that unites individuals through shared experience.
A ritual is a sequence of actions involving gestures, words, sounds, and objects. Performed in a cultural context the ritual creates a shared metaphysical world. Technology has the potential to unite people, but increasingly people feel lonely and isolated within contemporary media systems. I U WE offer an experience where Virtual and Augmented Reality becomes a tool to unify participants. With actors, projections, VR, AR, and sound, I U WE joins the group in a visual journey through a new cosmos.
This project was created in collaboration with the CPH:DOX at the CPH:LAB and showed at Cannes Marché Next: Virtual Reality Days 2017, and at CPH:DOX 2018.
