9 min.Interactive projectsVirtual reality

A virtual-reality installation is set up where two participants at a time can sit on a bench in a narrow room, wearing a VR headset. It is based on refugees' memories of the real-life transit zones and rooms they have occupied while waiting to hear the verdict on their asylum application. The installation is a memory-based mapping of the rooms refugees have passed through and stayed in for longer or shorter periods of time since they left Copenhagen Central Station and practically disappeared from the media spotlight.
