First UK appearance of a Danish Oculus Rift experience which plunges you into a family meal.
A dinner with a difference. You are seated at the table with four other diners. You don the goggles, and find yourself plunged into the kind of fraught family situation that Dogme movies used to specialise in. The food is virtual, but the sense of mounting tension is all too real.
Oculus Rift technology is still emerging, and some of its uses are admittedly on the gimmicky side. With this immersive new work, presented in the UK for the first time, Danish artists Mads Damsbo and Johan Knattrup Jensen demonstrate the medium’s potential as an entirely new form of cinema.
