In the Eyes of the Animal

Presenting our first foray into virtual reality and technology, a cinematic work that uses the mask of VR to take users on a fascinating journey above the tree canopy where they will come face-to-face with hi-definition critters and embody various animals as they traverse a natural forest. Wonderers will get to artistically interpret the sensory world of animals through binaural sound design that further increases the audience’s experience of the virtual environment by mimicking the natural perception of sound in space. People will not only be able to hear but ‘feel’ the sounds as audio vibrations turns into an experience connected to all the senses. The ultimate goal of this project, put together by London-based Marshmallow Laser Feast, is to create an understanding of how animals process optical information and give us a chance to reflect on our own visual perceptions of the environment.
