What is Breathing Room VR?

Step inside and let the Breathing Room enfold you with its soft light. Hear the creaking and whirring of thousands of paper-like cones slowly breathing in ... and out ... in ... and out …

Inspired by the physical Breathing Room installation made from 28,000 gently ‘breathing’ paper cones, Breathing Room VR is an interactive VR experience that immerses audiences in a psychedelic realm of surreal sensations.

Pulled through a portal into an illuminated, ‘breathing’ tunnel, audiences find themselves surrounded by rows of cones in a perpetual, wave-like motion that can be manipulated by changing light and scale.

By transforming space and our perception of it, Breathing Room VR creates profound experiences veering between the calming and the uncanny.
