Uku360º (Dive360º)

XR + New Media

Uku360ยบ is an experimental VR experience that takes viewers on a metaphysical journey into the ocean. Led by world champion and artist freediver Ai Futaki we are asked to switch off our reality to embrace the beauty of life below the surface.

This was filmed in Victoria, Australia on the Bellarine Peninsula. The seals were a great choice to film as they are naturally curious and didn't hesitate to get close and to check out the camera.
