The Mourning Light

An early prototype of a storytelling experience told through the medium of AR. The purpose of which is to use exploration of the virtual environment to tell a compelling and haunting narrative. Expanding on ideas from experiential theatre this project seeks to experiment with how passive and active experiences can shape a narrative, with a scope that reaches beyond the semester in which it is previewed.
