59 Productions have been commissioned by the BBC VR Hub to create a 6 minute bespoke VR experience inspired by the Five Telegrams commission by the BBC Proms, Edinburgh International Festival and 14-18 Now. The experience takes the second movement of Anna Meredith’s Five Telegrams and creates a brand new interpretation of the music in Virtual reality.
During the first world war millions of multiple choice postcards were sent home by soldiers from the trenches. Nothing except a signature was allowed to be written on the card – communication could only take place through prescribed phrases. Nothing to be Written is a VR artwork inspired by the messages on these postcards and the circumstances under which they were written and received.
