Three stories open the world of the northern landscape in virtual reality, what it means to come from it, live in it and belong to it.
Monoliths combines the soundscapes of real locations in the north with the stories of three northern women. Audiences experience three artistically rendered environments based on real outdoor locations. Monologues is delivered using spatially recorded voices. An exploration on how to meld the real audio soundscape of a location with 3D rendered environments, Monoliths aims to celebrate the stories of northern women.
Their stories and origins are tied to the landscape where they come from and have grown up. They are monoliths – standing stones – powerful and influential forces.
