Come and see the development of their latest work Symbiosis, a combination of VR, soft robotics, wearables and scent. Michelin star restaurant De Karpendonkse Hoeve is also involved in the project with food design, designed especially for the VR-experience. Be the first to test this new work in progress with us!
Symbiosis is a multi-sensory and performative VR installation, inspired by the work of the American biologist/ philosopher Donna Haraway. The human body is being redesigned with VR, soft robotics and other technologies. The experience takes place in a future in a world that has been radically changed by climate change. In the VR installation, you can experience what it is like to leave your human perspective for a while and live together as a genetically manipulated human or animal, plant or AI and see the world from a completely different perspective.
Due to the Corona regulations, we can only allow a maximum of 6 people per shift, min. 2 people can experience the VR-experience for themselves.
POLYMORF (NL) IS LOOKING FOR A FREELANCE NEW COLLAEGUE TO DESIGN THE UPCOMING MULTI-USER PERFORMATIVE VR PROJECT SYMBIOSIS

SYMBIOSIS will be created within the UNITY platform and for this we are looking for a game developer to co-design and code the SYMBIOSIS VR interaction, integrating assets, animation and working with particle systems / generative design to complement the POLYMORF design team.
