TEST - Lone Wolves Stick Together TEST 2 - MV - Liste over stipendiatprosjekter

Lone Wolves Stick Together is a Virtual Reality project for six players, that explores the possibilities of combining 360 film and animation with LARP and video games tools for interactivity, embodiment, interpretation, and participatory fiction.

The project aims to develop methods that can be applied to digital and physical 360 experiences.

Lone Wolves Stick Together is inspired by the movie Stalker by Tarkovsky, using similar themes and surreal settings to investigate one main question: Is it worth cheating fate to fulfil our deepest desires?

The art-research will emphasize four main hypotheses:

1. Virtual and physical 360 experiences – such as LARP - can be the model for one another.

2. World building and environmental design allow to create different variations of experiences, making projects more accessible and more sustainable.

3. VR and MR are a fertile ground for unforeseen collaborative storytelling.

4. “Immersivism”, or the quest of hyper-engaging experiences, is a form of hedonism that requires an ethical reflection.

By comparing the physical and virtual experience of identical settings, this research also investigates the epistemological opposition between realism and anti-realism. Finally, this project will also support the creation of a VR Blackbox open source tool, to be used by all communities of performance artists: LARP, theatre, performance art, etc
