Screen edit of a virtual reality artwork, 4 minutes.

MYRa: a gift for Rym combines digital underwater worlds with performance art, where viewers remain still amidst a virtual tidal wave, represented through fragments of 360 videos and 3D animations moving around them. This virtual wave is inspired by the Caribbean’s complex relationship with water: from geographical dependency to environmental precarity. It is also inspired by the loss of a close friend, the feeling of being submerged by grief.
