Fragments is a heartbreaking real-life testimony, volumetrically captured to allow the viewer to navigate the complex world of love, grief and memory.
‘Fragments’ is an award winning immersive documentary. It uses volumetric live capture to journey into the mind of Lisa as she remembers her lost love, Erik. Within a fractured room, fragments of past memories appear of their life together. Over time the memories become entangled with a haunting vision and eventually gravitate to the shocking moment of Erik’s death. As you navigate the space to explore these moments, new memories are triggered revealing new pathways through the story. Reaching out with your hands will manipulate the virtual space in ways that are intrinsically connected to the story, creating a truly unique narrative experience. Fragments is composed from audio interviews with Lisa Elin about her late husband Erik who had died just 6 months before. Lisa was terrified of losing Erik, even though he had already died. She was terrified of forgetting him. During the interviews, she would walk around her apartment and reminisce around the moments they had collected throughout their lives together. “Everything has a story” she would say as she explored. It’s this connection between space and memory that ‘Fragments’ will explore. The juxtaposition of the inertly real with the rich memories that explode when we encounter them. ‘Fragments’ will transform how we think about the things we hold dearest, our home, our memories, and most importantly those we love.
