Cluster is an intimate VR installation that attempts to elicit AWE in the user. This is done by taking the user through a journey with an overarching narrative that draws on nostalgia, the familiar and the unknown with the intent to bring the user into a state where they can look upon the world with a different perspective. This project was developed at the Centre for Digital Media in collaboration with the School of Interactive Arts & Sciences (SIAT), Simon Fraser University.
