Apnea. Opera d’arte interattiva immersiva sui migranti e il mare

Apnea. Opera d’arte interattiva immersiva sui migranti e il mare

Apnea refers to the shipwreck that occurred in Lampedusa on October 3, 2013 and explores the emotional dimension of migrants crossing the sea.
In the full version, not online, the visitor's exploratory experience takes place through three moments / environments that offer different degrees of immersiveness and interactivity.
The visitor starts his journey with an exhibition consisting of photographs, videos, written text, original artifacts found on the wreck of October 3, 2013 and ends it in a 360 ° immersive environment. All audio-visual content was produced on the island of Lampedusa in 2016 thanks to the collaboration with the journalist Valerio Cataldi and with the October 3 Committee.
In the online version it will be possible to immerse in a 360 ° video shot entirely in the seas of Lampedusa.
To learn more about the project you can see the short documentary Apnea_The eternity of absence. https://vimeo.com/265735485 and the booklet http://www.officinesintetiche.it/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/LIBRETTO-APNEA-EN.pdf
