OccultUs is an Oculus Rift installation that immerses the user in the midst of a sensory experience playing on the interpenetration of visual and sound elements from two distinct realities, one tangible and another simulated.
I wanted to exploit the technical and artistic potential of Oculus Rift without achieving a purely digital experience. I preferred imagining a hybrid installation to shake the sensory habits of users while questioning their relation to the world.
