Or Bit is a VR dance film that applies theatre-making methods to VR creation. Sophisticated movement designs are made for performers and a 360 degrees camera to explore attention direction in an immersive environment.
Who are you, as an audience in Or Bit? Are you breaking into someone else's world? Or are you trapped as well? Or Bit unveils the transition of X and Y from curious explorers to the trapped objects of observation.
