This 360 degree stop-motion VR by directors Isobel Knowles & Van Sowerwine recreates and investigates the geographic and visual dislocation of arriving somewhere unfamiliar and beginning the journey of finding a new home in a foreign land.
You are sitting in the back of a taxi, driving in the dark. As the landscape begins to change, the outside environment becomes increasingly surreal. You piece together your story—abstracted and dream-like— as you progress into the quiet shock of a new world. Your taxi driver, himself a migrant to Australia, navigates the new terrain with you, acting as your guide while also revealing parts of his own story.
