POETIC USE OF VIRTUAL REALITY
War Of Words: VR’ uses virtual reality to take you back to 1916, and into a mindset captured by Siegfried Sassoon in his controversial poem ‘The Kiss’.
‘The Kiss’ was written just before the Battle of the Somme, while Sassoon was on an army-training course.
The poet describes preparing a rifle for battle. Following the bullet fired from the rifle will lead you to the second part of the poem. The ‘kiss’ described by the writer is a metaphor for the act of bayoneting an enemy soldier.
Headphones are essential for War of the Words. Looking at the circular icon will activate the ‘War of Words VR’ experience. After the performance, play again by looking at the ‘Play Again’ button.
