Ancestral Secret VR

Ancestral Secret VR is a virtual reality project made in co-creation with members of the Q'ero indigenous community of Peru.
The experience places the user in the magical landscape of the Q'ero community, in the heights of the Vilcanota mountain range, the place where the last Incas lived.
It is a contemplative journey with interactive moments, in which the user transits between the physical reality of the Q'ero and their sacred dimension, where the cosmovision and their ancestral rites are made visible through animation.

This piece invites the young audience to connect with nature, from the ancestral perspective of the guardians of Inca spiritual knowledge.
