A surreal and spiritual VR journey through stunning visuals and stories about… sand? Absolutely. Because the supply of this raw material which is essential to our existence is under threat.
"Remove everything that depends on sand from our lives and our world would look dramatically different. We would have no glass, no computer chips, no buildings. We are simply not aware of how important sand is in everyday life," says geologist and sand expert Michael Welland. His commentary in this virtual reality exploration opens your eyes to the past and future of one of our most valuable – though unfortunately not inexhaustible – resources. On this spiritual VR journey, space and time merge in five chapters through imaginary landscapes, past colossal floating grains of sand to the dredgers that scrape it from the ocean floor for industrial use.
