Produced by Scatter and Rada Studio, The Changing Same: An American Pilgrimage is an episodic virtual reality experience where the participant journeys through non-linear time and space to witness the connected historical experiences of racial injustice in the United States.

Time travel allows us to move through the past, present and future to contemplate the cycles of history and their strong influence on our lived experiences today. The time travel mechanic is a liminal space where fireflies and gravitational forces guide the user through significant historical events represented as deconstructed “sets.”

The story is a room-scale 6DoF experience made for Oculus Rift S; HTC Vive; or Oculus Quest 1 or Quest 2 with a Link cable running with SteamVR.

Episode 1: The Dilemma

The first installment of this magical real, time-travel series. It precedes an ambitious corpus that unveils our common history of racial terror, Black joy and resistance. The audience bears witness to how history is present today.
