Cosmos Within Us is a daring storytelling experiment blurring the boundaries between VR and performance. Through a combination of state of the art technologies, immersive soundscapes, scent, and touch, the piece explores the intricate connection between memory and the senses.
The story draws us inside the mind of Aiken, a 60-year-old man desperately trying to hold on to his childhood memories. Aiken suffers from Alzheimer’s, and his struggle is one against a dwindling mind, against time, against final loss.
