Parallel dimensions and haunting noise-- lower the lights, turn up the sound, and look around.

Part short film, part game, and part video installation, 8 is an artist-produced app that places you in the middle of an immersive video where physically moving your device reveals events unfolding and repeating around you. Users can navigate through a maze of 24 looping scenes by simply tapping the screen. Navigation symbols can be used to learn patterns of movement through the app but there is no real beginning or end.
