Bike The Shining Hallway in VR

Nikolaj Petersen

The experience aims to put you inside the kid from 'The Shining", Danny Torrance's shoes. As you bike through hallways in an arbitrary basement, YOU play the central role by pedaling your way through the sometimes realistic, sometimes eery and maybe uncomfortable experience.


This project attempts to redesign the Hallway Scene from Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining'. I am interested in integrating a bodily activity into the experience of watching a film and investigated production scenarios that can make that happen. My project explores Virtual Reality as an inevitable forthcoming medium and questions what VR adds and changes in a film narrative. My experimental experience attempts to trick your senses, put you inside the shoes of Danny Torrance and ultimately ask –what else is possible?
