Bug404 is supporting the project development of “Beyond the Vision”. It is an installation with performance, virtual reality, and 3D audio. The project is directed by André Paz and co-created by blind participants. The project is in development and held its first exhibition in November 2019.
“Beyond the Vision” seeks to raise awareness among its participants about the reality of visual impairment while praising its potential, leading the user to experience a world without sight. In it, the visitor interacts in an immersive virtual reality circuit with 3D audio. At the end of the circuit, the visitor is invited to participate in a conversation held in total darkness with visually impaired participants.
In November 2019, the first version of “Beyond the Vision” was shown at UNIRIO. The event was produced by students of the Cultural Creation and Production Laboratory from the Production Engineering course with an Emphasis on Cultural Production.
