Short description

From Kabul to Paris, this project revisits the odyssey of Mortaza Jami. A journey this young Afghan, victim of a fatwa, undertook 8 years ago. Mortaza now lives in France, where he’s obtained refugee status. Invisible is a story told across 8 places in which the user is introduced to Mortaza through a sensory story presented in Virtual Reality 3D. Transported into the heart of his memory, the user discovers locations devoid of Mortaza’s presence. His voice inhabits these sites, weaving emotional threads around the listener, suspended between past and present. Invisible is a vessel, both sensory and mental, the last episode of which allows the user to «physically» meet Mortaza, in Paris.
