Memories in Decay: 360º Spatio-Temporal Explorations of the Past
The present case study focuses on 'Memories in Decay' is a 360º immersive experience which explores what happens when the past meets the present using the cinematic medium of the future: omnidirectional video. This project is a VR documentary which does not only transport the immersant – the 'spectator' of an immersive experience – to the ruins of a long-forgotten place, but also balances between past and present, providing access to a different time through the use of oral histories and archive photos and documents. In the paper, the author not only discusses the potential of VR but how it affects tradicitonal cinema and its processes.
