The Choice

In this planned series of interactive VR experiences, women talk about their choice to have an abortion. The woman sitting opposite you in this first episode shown at IDFA DocLab is Kristen from Texas. As you talk to her about her experience, the initially empty space around you gradually fills with animated line drawings that reinforce the story which is already so poignant.

Artificial Awakening

One of the key questions surrounding AI is whether an intelligence programmed by humans and created by machines can be called conscious. This immersive VR performance puts a metaphysical twist on this question and asks how AI can develop a spiritual consciousness. To explore this, director Jakob la Cour invited a team of artists and experts to engage in conversations and collaboration with various forms of AI. The result is a highly immersive, multi-sensory experience within a virtual environment.


EVOLVER is a mesmerizing virtual reality experience that celebrates our journey through life and death through the inner landscape of the human body. This musical real-time multiplayer experience invites audiences to follow oxygen’s flow deep into our bloodstream and inner branching, exploring the invisible human connection with the outside world.
