MOTH + FLAME Presents "Remember Remember"

This VR narrative explores how we process memories and how quickly those memories can be snatched away. Set in a world after an alien invasion, the piece cuts back and forth between the user's life prior to the catastrophe and the user being held prisoner and told their memories aren't real. Users are forced to question what is real and what is invented and question what they know. Remember Remember was developed in partnership with AMD to show off the benchmarking prowess of their top-of-the-line GPUs. Our presenter, Courtney Harding will discuss this interesting work of art, and it will be available all night as a Vive Demonstration.   See http://mothandflamevr.com/
