'Distraction' 2016

Distraction is the first of Paul O'Brien's 360 VR experiences.

At a time when VR is taking off in a direction of thrills and gaming, Paul is looking to create a more emotive experience.

Best viewed on a headset such as Google Cardboard, 'Distraction' brings the viewer to a standstill, caught between the past an the future. A stream of endless possibilities flow around you. Like an alternative view of your current situation, an emotional road map.
