A Cypriot flagged German owned container ship, sails the oceans carrying seafarers from Ukraine, Poland and the Philippines. This is where A Passage takes place: a digitally recorded 360º/ VR installation telling the story of a life at sea in a physical, tangible way. The audience witnesses the harsh reality of overseas filipino workers and other temporary employees. The immersive experience incorporates the wind of the ocean and the vibrations of the ship‘s engine.
