We Live Here

Getting to know the homeless and their life stories has generally seemed socially difficult and unpleasant. That’s not the case with this interactive VR project, which plays out in the tent of Rockey, a homeless American woman.

The narrative of this VR experience is based on interacting with various memorabilia of the homeless woman Rockey consisting of ordinary items, such as a diary or a coffee cup. Contact with these objects releases a flow of memories from her life. These narrative fragments refute the common, albeit false, assumption that people end up on the streets because they did something contemptible. This film reminds us of one basic event that leads to the loss of one’s home and can happen to anyone at any time: losing one’s job.
