VR experience for Oculus Rift
Homescape is an interactive VR experience. It is a dark and eerie night stroll around the outskirts of Maas, an Israeli village. The viewer explores the fields where native trees and animals, abandoned buildings from colonial British rule and ruins of Palestinian settlements all reside together. These marginal spaces are the sites of the artist's childhood memories, and it is there that the viewer is confronted with the unknown - the mysterious regions close to home and the uncharted territories of their own mind. With a guided meditation sequence opening the VR piece, the project bridges the history and cognitive experience of the individual with the local and global cultures in which they are immersed.
