Notes On Blindness : Into Darkness is a VR and interactive experience produced by Ex Nihilo, ARTE France, in co-production with Archer’s Mark. In 2015, Notes on Blindness was laureate of the TriBeCa New Media Fund in New York.
The project is based on John Hull’s sensory and psychological experience of blindness, and was released alongside the feature film on the same subject.
John Hull’s original audio recordings forms the basis of this project, a six-part interactive documentary using new forms of storytelling, gameplay mechanics and virtual reality to explore his cognitive and emotional experience of blindness.
Each scene addresses a memory, a moment and a specific location from John’s audio diary, using binaural audio and real time 3D animations to create a fully immersive experience in a ‘world beyond sight’.
