Free Fall is Dana Gingras’s new creation for an immersive dome theatre and virtual reality. The immersive film is a physical experience of vertigo and transcendence, produced by the circular motion of falling bodies subject to gravity. This force flows in us, through us and around us. The immersive experience seeks to stimulate the viewer’s senses in unexpected ways, causing surprisingly visceral and psychological sensations that give rise to a feeling of abandonment and movement through a vortex of interstitial space.
The project was supported by the Society for Arts and Technology (SAT) as part of its residency Art Creation Program
