An odyssey of memories in deep space. Designed from the ground up for room-scale virtual reality, it is an experimental narrative that eschews interactive and linear storytelling conventions to probe the possibilities of the medium. It unfolds organically as the player discovers and engages their curiosity. From the small, micro scale to the epic and infinite, the experience embodies varied tones and themes artistically and mechanically. The player's role within the world slowly shifts from observer to author, from uncertainty to exuberance.
Irrational Exuberance is a documentary of imagined places. We build spaces with a tone and theme in mind but are always looking for the native language of VR, and so we build, iterate, respond, and discard. It is an aesthetic, tactile experience in the moment, while the larger stage is a cerebral exploration of the possibilities of space and motion.
