Stills from Bridging the Blue
This inspiring work “emerged from a lived experience of clinically diagnosed depression and the potential of VR in empathic storytelling.” Lubna is “interested in the novelty-factor, playfulness and immediacy of the medium and how it enables an experience of entering another’s inner landscape.” Her vision and concept drove this creative collaboration with V-SENSE team members, Alan Cummins, Rogerio da Silva, Matthew Moynihan, Iman Zolanvari with Neill O’ Dwyer, Department of Drama, School of Creative Arts, Trinity College Dublin. The score was composed by Professor Evangelia Rigaki, Department of Music, School of Creative Arts, Trinity College Dublin. We are very grateful to all involved who helped to create this vision and project. We are very proud of our successful creative collaboration with Lubna and our creative experiment Bridging the Blue.
They will participate in a lunchtime technical talk tomorrow 20th June, all information here!
