VR All In This Together, 2018
VR experience for Mobile VR
Bianca Kennedy combines in her first 360° animation VR All In This Together analog drawings with animated movements and offers an immersive bathing experience. The theatrical staging of the bathtub has been Kennedy's main subject for the past two years. The tub not only appears to be a secure place where people expose themselves - in an environment coming close to the feeling of being inside a mother's womb - it's also a place which gives you time to ponder. In her three channel video work "We're all in this together", which can be understood as the precursor to the 360° video, she gathered found footage of bathing movie stars and analyzes the use of the bathtub within feature films. In this 360° animation it's now possible for the viewer to leave his/her place as a voyeur and step into the tub, bathing with six different people at the same time, all based on her drawings.
