NO EXIT OASIS ( 2020-21)

a VR (Mozilla) Hub / Web-based Audiovisual Environment.

No Exit Oasis is an online, audiovisual VR environment, suggesting an open landscape within a black surrounding void. In this flooded sculpture garden, at architectural scale, online visitors are free to explore by flying around. Users can also pass through objects, discovering hidden quasi-indoor spaces.

Moving though the environment, sound changes and discrete sonic fields drift in and out of audible range. Visitors charting their individual paths through this park experience a personal soundtrack, ranging from ambient to rhythmic, both when in motion or not.  
The work is partially a reflection on the period of personal confinement during the 2020/21 pandemic. As such, No Exit Oasis acts as both a space for escape as well as mirroring a shrunken world, in which movement and tangible human exchange turned virtual.

Best using a VR headsets but works also on desktop display.
