FOLLY FEAST LAB

We create visually-led immersive and interactive experiences to address present social and urban themes



Be.longing







The projected, immersive experience allows visitors to maintain social distancing guidelines by remaining in their cars and watching from inside. The “drive-by” portrays a filmic diary of sorts, viewed through the visitors’ own car windows as if they were themselves driving through the reconstructed queer neighborhoods.


Be.longing looks at 20 different residential neighborhoods in L.A. to tease out the particularities of their domestic front porches. The focus is on the story of Amal, a woman who is on a journey driving through L.A.’s neighborhoods in search of her own queer community. Stereotypical symbols of queer culture and their manifestation on the houses’ front porch.

Mediterranean Sea Diaries








Mediterranean Sea Diaries is a VR forum accessible and inclusive version of an UN climate convention on e-waste with an interactive educational purpose through playful immersive environment.
Since 2015, Lebanon has been in crisis apropos waste management. Waste has been filling up green valleys, streets, and most terrifyingly sea shores. It is causing environmental disasters, burning forests, hurting biodiversity, leading to explosions, and leaking toxic substances into the Mediterranean Sea.

#TalkAboutBeirut - احكي عن بيروت#




“ The inequities of humanity have been evident throughout history. Some may never leave their country in their lifetime, some may never leave their respective cities. Today however, we are able to connect and we are hoping to utilize our platform to the best of our ability, to expose and to reexamine what has been going on around us. This awareness art project is just another example of giving individuals the opportunity to lead the narrative on what a city looks like- particularly in the aftermath of such a devastating event such as the explosion in the middle of a pandemic. For those of you that didn’t know, Beirut is one of worlds most beautiful and architecturally interesting cities.” - @STUDIO1-0-6LA
