Eldorado
iraqi soundscapes (2012-2013) cultural experience

Cross-disciplinary piece

Cultural Experience project 2017 (Iraqi soundscapes 2012 - 2013) developped under Unity 3d is an experiential, anthropological and cognition system based on three-dimensional virtual reality. It enables poetical and emotional experimentation for the participant and permits a new approach on human studies through immersive and interactive learning processes. As a traveller, the occidental participant discovers unknown soundscapes whereby they can only relate through their own emotional processes and interpretations. The oriental participant could interact with some of the langages spoken in the recorded spatialised sounds that they will encounter whilst walking on the platform.

This territory is Iraq at a time of global warming. The sounds were recorded all around the country before the rise of Isis, in 2012 - 2013. Through a serious gaming system we can now enter the unconscious and subjective memory, meteorology of a territory, its complexities and populations semiotics expressed before a civil war, untranslated.
