Fear is an emotion that everyone experiences. Even though fear is such a universal emotion, I started questioning why I am scared so often and how the mental process around fear works. Out of these questions Distilling Fear was born: an interactive Virtual Reality experience about how we deal with fear, accompanied by an informative illustrated booklet.
Have you ever deeply considered how fear works, and why we experience it at all? How often do you talk openly to others about your fears? It often feels strangely uncomfortable to bring up this universally shared emotion, and many people want to push it out of their consciousness as much as possible.
With this project I aim to break through the taboo surrounding fear, and help people realise that fear is a normal emotion and even an important part of the human experience. Fear is part of being human.
