EL 48 is an immersive, virtual reality experience. More than an experience, it’s a kind of time-traveling state of mind. An experience that recreates the moment that Costa Rica’s President, Jose Figueres Ferrer struck the wall of the country’s largest military headquarters officially dismantling the Costa Rican military. EL 48 interactively escorts the user on a journey through history and the far-reaching implications of one symbolic moment in time.
A Project to Revive Memory
Individual memories are unique, irreplaceable, deeply personal… they are the stories that dwell within and shape who we are. Then there are the memories that are told to us, that live on in history books.
And then, there is shared memory. The one that molds us collectively – as a family, a community, a world. The one that forms the roots of our past and the fruits of our future.
The one we cannot afford to forget.
