Walzer is a virtual reality experience with several stories circling women's rights and the first wave of feminism during the late 19th and early 20th century.
As you travel through a virtual photographic landscape, a waltz is your guide. When you move around, the waltz morphs into a variety of moods in eight different languages accompanied by songs and poems.
This vr was built with thousands of unknown personal photographs found on flea markets, online marketplaces and private collections. During the process of collecting and digital restoration, intriguing stories emerged. Narratives developed when we connected pictures with other pictures and combined them with music, words, sounds and 3D technology. Inside this virtual world the user's knowledge, background and behavior determines the experience.
