An Oculus Rift experience.


A virtual reality work based on Goethe’s Erlkönig poem. Viewer arrives into a procedurally generated snowy forest. A storm roars. White, glowing spheres that appear in the forest react to line of view and emit sounds and music.

Erlkönig started as a small test project in VR workshop at Aalto University. Its original purpose was to test different methods of interaction in virtual reality environment without external peripherals. It is not a game or a film, but more of a place or a state of mind.
