A unique digital archive for Virtual Reality
Dreaming Methods is responsible for some of the internet’s earliest media-rich digital fiction. Much of that work was created in Flash, a technology that was removed from all major web browsers in 2020.
Working with Professor Alice Bell from Sheffield Hallam University and funded through the University’s Creating Knowledge Impact Acceleration Account, Curios archives and re-purposes three of our Flash works originally made as far back as 1999 and makes it uniquely possible to explore them in VR through a magical virtual curiosity shop. From fragments of words held in glass bottles to sprawling apocalyptic dreamscapes, Curios offers an immersive glimpse into Dreaming Methods’ signature world of dream-inspired narratives, living texts and lost realities.
