Equine Eyes

An immersive experience to promote interspecies empathy and understanding

Equine Eyes is a research project which explores methods for increasing interspecies empathy and understanding through embodiment and play. The project uses bespoke, custom built, immersive technology to allow the wearers to ‘see like a horse’ and asks them to consider how we might create more inclusive, shared, more than human futures that understand non-human animals on their own terms.
