KT Niehoff's "Before We Flew Like Birds, We Flew Like Clouds" is an audience activated installation illuminating the experiences of four humans with extraordinary relationships to their bodies – an astronaut, a professional athlete, a survivor of a near death experience and a differently abled person – using Virtual Reality films, prerecorded and live music staged inside a floating, immersive set of star-like objects.
The narrative centers on the question, “what is it like to be in your body?” Each contributor’s personal stories are integrated in the installation through audio interviews sampled and used in score.
The film component consists of four Virtual Reality short films created in partnership with these contributor’s – each as the subject matter of their own film. The films are intended to be viewed through VR goggles, but full screen window viewing is available for your convenience as well.
