Cosmos Within Us is a daring story-telling experiment which blurs the boundaries between VR and performance. Through a combination of state-of-the-art tech and live music, voice over, scent and touch, the piece explores the intricate connection between memory and the senses.

Cosmos Within Us was created to deliver a sense of hope and understanding to anyone affected by memory loss. With advancements in VR, we strive to remember the forgotten.
