4Experience: Virtual Reality

Until recently, virtual realities seemed like total fantasy or a very faulty idea. Today’s technology proves that VR can not only work well, but also discover new and exciting uses for media. We’d like to redefine the idea of “post-cinema” by inviting everyone to a virtual theatre. You will experience being in a 360-degree music video and immerse yourself in the curious worlds of experimental games. VR is a space of possibilities which will surprise us many times in the coming days – we will show a tiny bit of this hyperworld at Ars Independent.

The technological partner of this project is 4Experience.
