Synopsis

We Live Here introduces us to Rockey, a 59 year-old woman who has been living in a tent, in a park for almost three years. In this interactive VR experience you will be asked to interact with Rockey’s objects and through them learn of her life, her stories. You will come to understand you are not so different than Rockey. You will understand that even you, through a series of misfortunes, could find yourself like Rockey - homeless.

Director’s Statement

In We Live Here you will meet Rockey, hear her stories. I hope you will feel her home, make yourself comfortable in it - then feel the loss when it is stripped away. I hope this piece leaves a message in your brain - posits a question - could this be me? Am I so different than the ones I pass on the street - leaving nothing in a hand and not saying a word when asked to help?
