Like a painting by a Dutch master reminding us that life is temporary, Vanitas is never quite what it seems. It begins with an ominous bouquet of flowers and ends with a rendezvous at the centre of the cemetery where secrets are revealed to those who seek an answer.
Blurring documentary with fiction, Vanitas is a reflective thriller about life’s great mystery: death. Experience it through your own smartphone and decrypt it through the secret language of flowers.
Vanitas stretches across the glass of your phone, up your finger, through your body and out into the world. You can sit back and listen, or take it for a walk through the cemetery. The problem is knowing where the edges are, where Vanitas ends and the real world begins.
Why do you request that I sign-in to Vanitas?
As the last paragraph of our project introduction above says, we have designed an experience that stretches beyond an app and into the world. We need to be able to contact you through a variety of means over the course of the Vanitas experience.
Isn’t that creepy?
Part of a vanitas is to be surprised.
Who will contact me?
What information do you require?
We will only ever ask for your name, country, email address and mobile number. We will never ask for your social media details or home or work addresses.
Will Vanitas work if I do not give my details?
You can listen to the free episodes without signing-in, but you will not recieve the expanding experience. You cannot participate in The Cemetery Experience unless you sign-in.
I still have questions…
