THE FUNGAL ART OF BIOREMEDIATION
Hypha is an immersive virtual reality story that takes you on a journey to cleanse Earth from man-made disasters by becoming a mushroom.
From spore to mycelium, you can experience the life cycle of a mushroom to understand the importance of the Fungi Kingdom as the main bioremediation agent of Earth.
We are a transdisciplinary team: filmmakers, designers, mycologists, sound and digital artists, animators and programmers.
This project has been developed collectively and with great emphasis on sound and visual experimentation from the various disciplines.
The first drafts were made in Tilt Brush and Quill, virtual reality applications to draw and animate in 3d. This way we have been able to experiment quickly with the first person perspective, the change of dimensions and sketching concepts.
We believe in the importance of using virtual reality tools to conceptualize new worlds and possibilities.
