LONGING FOR WILDERNESS // Epic Scapes, Marc Zimmerman
Longing for Wilderness is a 360° VR-experience that takes you from the noisy city through the slowly transforming forest towards a calm and airy landscape. It seeks to express our innate longing to experience nature in its rawest form.
SANCTUARIES OF SILENCE // Adam Loften, Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee
Silence just might be on the verge of extinction and acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton believes that even the most remote corners of the globe are impacted by noise pollution. In Sanctuaries of Silence, join Hempton on an immersive listening journey into Olympic National Park, one of the quietest places in North America.
WILDERNESS: A IMMERSIVE JOURNEY INTO PATAGONIA // The Guardian
The wilderness of Patagonia – shared by Argentina and Chile – has frequently been threatened by logging and oil industries. But in January, Chile signed a historic act of conservation, creating five protected national parks covering 4m hectares. Take an immersive journey through the wilds of Patagonia whilst exploring what wilderness really means.
THE 500 // Biome Productions
The 500 is the story of one man who is dedicated to saving one of the world’s most endangered species – the Ethiopian wolf. The experience was created by Bristol’s natural history VR innovators, Biome Productions. With less than 500 individuals, the Ethiopian wolf is on the brink of extinction, and for Alo Hussein, these wolves are family.
