Empath, by splash and ripple

Empath is an audio augmented reality experience where the drama is in the player's head, controlled by decisions they make in the real world like where to walk or who to call. We've been working with historians, immigrants and migrants as well as psychologists and neurologists to consider how we might develop an sympathetic experience. 
This show will open in Bristol in November 2018.
