Place VR

Place is a VR experience that revives the Great Synagogue of Aleppo through digital walls and memories.

Since the end of 2022, Place is exhibited in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

The prototypes of the project have been shown at the film festivals DOK Leipzig and Docaviv .

As the project is trying to recreate the experience of the Synagogue, like a archeological reconstruction with the senses, also the sound follows the same path.

Thus the approach within the VR experience and the videos, was mainly to recreate the feeling of being back then and there.

I used several archived sounds mixed with contemporary recordings to travel the listener back to the environment of Alepo.
