Tzina: symphony of longing is a poetic, interactive room-scale webVR documentary in which the residents of the run-down Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv muse on love and things that are no more.
At the beginning of 2017, Tzina Dizengoff square, one of Tel Aviv’s emblematic sites, has been demolished. The square became a home for the lonely and marginalized characters of the area. This project tells the story of the people who gravitated toward the square and spent their days in it. In this interactive webVR documentary (for HTC Vive + chrome), they talk about their lives and the square. Tzina invites you to physically explore the virtual square, combining elements of fantasy while experiencing the square at different times of the day.
Tzina is a multi-viewers documentary - each viewer is represented by a pigeon, walking inside the virtual square. That way, the viewers can be alone, yet together in the square, just like the characters themselves.
