Muted is a virtual reality experience that immerses us in childhood memories. We experience weightless drop of 700 meters, into the depths, through the ramifications of the past. In a poetic universe made of drawings we discover the story of two abandoned girls. With no established narrative, everything is intertwined in this story, as memories would be. This experience mixes emotional and physical sensation by bringing the feeling of abandonment closer to a weightless fall. ‘Muted’ is not a virtual reality film, but a six degrees of freedom experience that allows us to be fully integrated into the universe.
The Muted experience was presented for the first time at Chroniques in autumn 2018 and at Kanal – Center Pompidou in spring 2019.
