How do you capture a last breath? In Episode 1 of Death &Design, join host Paola Antonelli, curator of Architecture and Design at MOMA, as she looks inside Vespers, a collection of death masks designed to map and contain a final exhalation, created by Dr. Neri Oxman and the Mediated Matter Group at the MIT Media Lab.
SIBLING RIVALRY, in collaboration with Paola Antonelli, created &Design, an episodic VR series rooted in universal and deeply human themes such as Death, Love, God, and the idea of Self. &Design guides audiences through an immersive experience of the design that melds anthropology, science, history, and technology. Partnering with Sibling Rivalry, YESSIAN MUSIC created an immersive ambisonic soundscape for the new Pilot Season series “__&Design” featured on the Samsung VR portal.
Making its debut at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, &Design was made possible by a grant from Samsung’s VR Pilot Program. SIBLING RIVALRY Partner/Creative Director Mikon van Gastel and co-creator/host Paola Antonelli were amongst the featured directors on the panel at the festival.
