Imagine the gothic atmosphere of a Brontë sister’s story transmuted into a virtual realm. The upper class but gloomy Victorian fashion and psyches spread across the wintry lands of Haworth, England. This is kind of like what Reed & Rader create with Winter 360°, an immersive virtual reality experience.

Unlike a piece of Brontean fiction, there is a high degree of surrealism in Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader’s new piece. Trees float, impossibly-colored ocean waves move in strange waveforms, a striking young woman stands completely still, dressed in a white dress amidst the unlikely landscapes. Just over a minute in length, Winter 360° can be explored by dragging a mouse around on a computer running the Chrome browser, or on the YouTube app for iOS and Android.
