Missing 10 Hours makes you realize how much the decision and actions of bystanders can drastically influence the course of an evening. In this interactive VR piece, the viewer is led on a night out by Greg, a big-headed guy with bad intentions.
All of us are bystanders when we observe actions or situations that jeopardize one’s safety or well-being. In this VR piece, the visitor witnesses Mara, a 22-year-old woman gradually losing control of her actions. She has been unwillingly drugged with the date rape drug GHB, which is most frequently used for sexually motivated attacks. The power to change how the night unfolds is in the visitor’s hands. But will they stay on the ethical pathway if other characters reveal new possibilities?
