VR experience for Oculus Rift
Afterlife is an immersive virtual reality experience inspired by Buddhist contemplation techniques which can be employed to temporarily escape sensory overload from our physical surroundings. Everything in this world is designed to guide our attention to simple things such as colors, light, and droning sounds or just experiencing the vastness of the space. The work, a result of the cooperation of Herwig Scherabon, Arno Deutschbauer, Michael Ari, and Lukas Fliszar, helps us to comprehend the impermanence of life and let go of what we think we have to be. The experience initiated by sound:frame invites us to just watch and abandon our thoughts, expectations, and cares.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
The collective behind Afterlife consists of Herwig Scherabon, Arno Deutschbauer and 101. The creative menage joined forces in the studio of 101 where a lot of discourse about the possibilities of virtual reality sparked the idea for the installation. The artists and designers share the feeling that space as a commodity is becoming sparse and they sense a general need for retreat from society’s hectic modern lifestyle. Afterlife is a collective effort to fuse the worlds of art, technology and contemplation. Everyone involved comes from a different background like design, 3D art, coding, and music production. Together they want to bring their knowledge into virtual reality and explore the graphic and immersive possibilities of this technology.
