ABOUT

The collaborators

“I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate.”

With VR technology advancing every day, we now have the capability to transport ourselves to worlds that were once unknown to us.

We work alongside creatives who are dedicated to exploring the human condition and testing the boundaries of our perception. And with interactive VR now allowing us to do just that, we have the ability to engineer our minds' eye to open up the possibility of stepping into the world of another.

Here at Alterscape Collective, our collaborators have invested their time and expertise in making this vision come to life. Making these experiential programmes possible takes a lot of hard work, and so we feel it’s important to present them as individual artists who have their own stories to tell.
