Tree wil be showing at the Virual Arcade at TriBeCa Film Festival. We added scents of forests, dirt and the final destiny (provided by IFF) this time!
Tree is a virtual reality film directed by Milica Zec and Winslow Potter, that transforms you into a rainforest tree. With your arms as branches and body as the trunk, you experience the tree’s growth from a seedling into its fullest form and witness its fate firsthand. I designed and constructed the tactile experience throughout the film in collaboration with Yedan Qian. With precisely controlled physical elements including vibration, heat, fan, and body haptics, the team created a fully immersive virtual reality storytelling tool, where the audience no longer watches but is transformed into a new identity, a giant tree in the Peruvian rainforest.
Tree premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2017 New Frontier and was also presented in TribeCa Film Festival 2017.
