World in a Cell: with USC Cinema
In collaboration with the World-building Media Lab and The Bridge Institute at The University of Southern California, we set out to prototype the experiential world of the inside of a single Pancreatic Beta Cell in Virtual Reality. This art-science collaboration allowed users to explore inside the cell while prompting new discussions, narratives and concepts.
