Nothing to be Written | BBC VR

I was asked by 59 Productions to be Lead Animator on this moving and poignant virtual reality experience to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War. The 6 minute experience was inspired by the Five Telegrams commission by the BBC Proms, Edinburgh International Festival and 14-18 Now.

The experience takes the second movement of Anna Meredith’s Five Telegrams and creates a brand new interpretation of the music in virtual reality.

During the First World War millions of multiple choice postcards were sent home by soldiers from the front lines. Nothing except a signature was allowed to be written on the card, communication could only take place through the prescribed phrases. Nothing to be Written is a VR artwork inspired from the messages on these postcards and the circumstances under which they were written and received.

This project won “Best UK Experience” at the 2018 Raindance Festival.
