This new commission will enable audiences to encounter England’s forests anew through an immersive virtual reality experience, told by the inhabitants of the forest. This 360 degree experience is a speculative short story focusing on the life-cycle of three species. This will manifest in a mirrored sculptural installation suspending from a giant tree in the woodland.
Creative collective Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF) delight in exploring the line between virtual and real-world experiences. This project will invite audiences to a unique virtual reality setting created specifically for the Forest. Filmed using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or ‘drones’ and bespoke 360º cameras, it is is set to a binaural soundtrack using audio recordings sourced from the surrounding woodland.
