Notes on Blindness: A VR Journey Into a World Beyond Sight

Notes On Blindness: Into Darkness is a VR and interactive experience produced by Ex Nihilo, ARTE France, and the French startup AudioGaming, in co-production with Archer’s Mark. It uses new forms of storytelling, gameplay mechanics and VR to explore John’s 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’.

This interactive experience complements the story world of the feature film, but aims to open up a public discourse about blindness, allowing audiences to understand and ‘feel’ their way into that discussion.

Made with Unity, the experience will be released on Samsung Gear, Cardboard and Oculus for the VR, and on all IOS and Android devices for the 360° version.
