insights from the above projects are:

  • a strong geographic cluster around a particular area
  • User interaction and engagement
  • Functionality, simplicity and  readability of text

OCcultUs and Perception

“OccultUs is an installation that exploits the potential of the Oculus Rift technology by immersing the user into a sensory experience that mixes two distinct realities, physical and simulated.”

“The OccultUs experience requests users’ participation in a double way: as the leading actor of the piece, but also as an integral part of it by becoming the object of other spectators’ attention.”
