    Norwich, United KingdomFreelance
    In/Ex is a collaborative project exploring immersion through the use of virtual reality. We recently obtained a 2-month mentoring and bursary scheme with Collusion, a not-for-profit arts organisation that works at the intersection of arts, technology and human interaction, funded by Arts Council England. Alongside two other students, we propose to combine each of our creative practices to create a surreal AR environment accessible in the home.
