Notes on Blindness : Into Darkness is an immersive virtual reality (VR) project based on John Hull’s sensory and psychological experience of blindness released alongside the feature film.
John Hull’s original audio recordings form also the basis of this project, a six-part interactive documentary using new forms of storytelling, gameplay mechanics and virtual reality to explore his cognitive and emotional experience of blindness.
Each scene will address a memory, a moment and a specific location from John’s audio diary, using binaural audio and real time 3D animations to create a fully immersive experience in a ‘world beyond sight’.
Made with Unity, Notes on Blindness : Into Darkness is now available to download for Samsung Gear for free at the Oculus Store. It will be coming to other platforms including App Store and Google Play Store beginning October 12th. It will also be exhibited alongside the theatrical release of the feature film.
