PERSPECTIVES

An avalanche of misinformation is causing a rift in our society. The ‘silos’ of information are hard to break through, causing a vicious circle of growing mistrust of those outside our own bubble. The lack of understanding of others’ perspectives is growing. The intolerance is growing.

Broadcasting views and seeking quick reactions drives exposure and business. Information needs to be brief and stand out, no time is left for the reflection and deeper understanding needed to turn the trend. We are growing further apart.

Our project, PERSPECTIVES, aims to support an increased understanding of others and their perspectives. With our experience, we want to create a space for reflection around complex and dividing topics. A space for understanding and compassion. A space without judgment. A space to connect and unite.

About

An experience to increase the understanding and compassion of others.

What we will create...

PERSPECTIVES is an immersive VR experience to bridge societal divides. It will let you connect to people that are different from you, and you will be led on a personal journey towards a world that encourages dialogue instead of confrontation.

We will leverage research in behavioural science and VR to create an environment that stimulates reflection, learning, and understanding by facilitating an emotional and constructive processing of data.

The experience will primarily be developed for Oculus Quest 2, using hand tracking for increased feeling of presence and ease of navigation.

Virtual Reality

VR has the ability to immerse the user and create a space for reflection supporting a deeper understanding of others and their perspectives.

Data contextualization

To increase understanding of others, data needs to be contextualized and communicated in a way that not only speaks to our rational mind.

Dialogue

We need to create a space based on trust and without judgement to encourage dialogue instead of confrontation.

Team

The team around PERSPECTIVES brings key expertise from VR, Behavioural and Data Science, and together they leverage technology and art to deliver high-impact projects.
