Special Treatment by Applied Interactives is a Virtual Reality based artwork that blends the architectures of history and memory. The experiences victims, survivors, oppressors, and contemporary visitors are combined in the work to recreate a no-man’s land built around the worst atrocities mankind has visited upon itself. Applied Interactives is a collaborative group of artists and technologists dedicated to the development and use of interactive and immersive technologies as an accessible and affordable creative visualization medium.
Yggdrasil is a journey in time through a Swedish pagan history of the gods. Bino and Cool are VR artists and researchers in visualization at KTH in Stockholm, as well as creators of the VR art applications Yggdrasil and Giza. They are additionally founders of the VR company Virtual Rules.
