The Hangman at Home - VR

"What does the hangman think about when he goes home at night from work?"

«The Hangman at Home» is an animated VR experience exploring themes surrounding acknowledgement and the awkward intimacy of humanness. Told in five interwoven stories; each situation presents a person, or persons in a delicate moment: fragile, playful, terrified, contemplated, confused, curious…

We are all very much alike in these moments - alerting us to question our own responsibility and responses.

The project is based on Carl Sandburg's poem The Hangman at Home, from the collection "Smoke & Steel" (1922)
