Peaceful Places is a VR experimental project by Margherita Landi and Agnese Lanza, the winner of the Auggie Awards USA 2021 in the category Best Art or Film, which explores a new form of language, the affective one.

Using the instrument of imitation, it is possible to simulate the gestures of the couples around us, listen to the energy generated by their hug and recreate the same experience.

Peaceful Places is a virtual reality dance experience in which the headset becomes the media to find familiarity with the human instinct of the hug.
