Parallel dimensions, dystopic visions, and haunting noise. Lower the lights, turn on the sound.
Part short film, part game, and part video installation, 8 places you in the middle of a spherical video environment where physically moving the screen reveals events unfolding and repeating around you. Each of the 24 scenes has been designed as a loop, suspending space and time and inviting exploration. Users can navigate between scenes by simply tapping the screen and a series of navigation symbols can be used to learn patterns of movement through the maze of scenes, without a real beginning or end.
