Manic VR

Manic VR

Guided by Felicia’s and François’s voices we set out on a journey through the phases of bipolar disorder: an intimate insight into the constantly changing realities and states that are part of the typical symptoms of manic depression. “Manic VR” tells a non-fictional story by means of 3D animation, psychedelic pigmentation effects and room-scale interaction.

Lars Rummel, Marie Hinkelmann
