They Dream in My Bones - Insemnopedy II

VR - AR France 2021
By: Faye Formisano

THEY DREAM IN MY BONES - INSEMNOPEDY II is a transfixing meditation and a stirring experiential proposition that explores what fabric might bind the physical and metaphysical, and how to extract dreams from an unknown skeleton. This fictional circumstance tells the story of Roderick Norman, a researcher in onirogenetics — the science he founded — and opens up the intersection of the physical and the dreamworld, of gender and biology, and of an individual body and a symbiotic microbiome.
A dreamy, minimalist scientific fable rendered in black and white, THEY DREAM IN MY BONES incorporates the viscerality of textile dynamics with 3D drawings and images shot with a traditional camera. The resulting virtual reality film allows us to explore the metamorphosis of a skeleton at the frontier of gender and the human.
