An Oculus Rift experience – 2016

A virtual reality work based on Goethe’s Erlkönig poem.


You arrive into a procedurally generated snowy forest. A storm roars. White, glowing spheres appear in the forest and react to your view, emitting sound, music and light.

Erlkönig started as a small test project in VR workshop at Aalto University. Its original purpose was to test different methods of interaction in virtual reality environment without external peripherals. It is not a game or a film, but more of a place or a state of mind.
