Eye Filmmuseum sharpens the senses with Xtended, an ongoing programme dedicated to VR installations by international artists and filmmakers. Renowned makers have pledged their participation in the series. It is the first time that a museum has devoted structural attention over several years to virtual reality as a cinematic art form.
Xtended: The Deserted
Prominent film director of the new cinema movement in Taiwan Tsai Ming-liang made a 360-degree video where a man is recuperating from an illness in a ruined apartment block in the mountains. He is visited by the ghost of a mother and a bride. The only companion he connects with is a lone fish.
