From 11th until 15th July, young Herefordshire artists Maddie McVeigh, Belle Batkin and Ollie Lansdell present their 360 VR exploration of the river Wye, its life today and its historical context as the main artery for lumber transport in the region, which is mostly forgotten. The piece includes 360 drone footage that descends into the river itself to give viewers a glimpse of a part of ‘unseen’ Herefordshire, the bubbling, broiling energy of the Wye itself. The installation is a collision of Maddie’s visual artist work, Belle’s multi-platform maker practice and Ollie’s digital filmmaking skills, using readily available kit and software to demonstrate what is possible for anyone to achieve in VR. Soundtrack and sound design by Leo Cunningham, otherwise known as Lecu.
