muted

CHRISTOPHE MONCHALIN

Interactive Installation

Production CHRONIQUES 2018

‘Muted’ is a virtual reality experience that plunges us into childhood memories.

We experiencing a weightless fall of 700 meters, into the depths, across the ramifications of the past. In a poetic universe made of drawings, we discover the story of two abandoned girls. With no esta- blished narrative, everything intertwines in this story, as memories do.

This experience mixes emotional and physical sensation, vivdly evoking feelings of abandonment through a sen- sation of weightless falling. ’Muted’ is not a virtual reality film, but a six degrees of freedom experience that allows you to be fully integrated into its universe.

It is poetry and sensoriality that guide the way. Neither totally video game, nor play, nor 360 film, the work offers a sensitive examination of the identity and construction of memories.
