A poetic, interactive webVR documentary for HTC Vive and chrome browser in which the residents of the run-down Dizengoff Square in Tel Aviv muse on love and things that are no more. At the beginning of 2017, Tzina Dizengoff square, one of Tel Aviv’s emblematic sites, has been demolished. The square was a home for the lonely and marginalized characters of the area. This project tells the story of the people who gravitated toward the square and spent their days in it. In this interactive webVR documentary, they talk about their lives and the square. Tzina: symphony of longing invites the viewer for a physical walk to explore the square and it characters at different times of the day, with elements of animation, fantasy and interactive sound. 13 different characters, spread over 5 episodes. Each episode in the experience represents a different part of the day - from dawn to dusk. Tzina is designed to be a multi-user documentary - each viewer is represented by a pigeon, walking inside the virtual square. That way the viewers can be alone, yet together.
