About

There is conclusive research that indicates that VR not only aids memory recall but it can also create false memories. VR Free explores the proposition of what it means to give VR headsets to prisoners in an Italian prison, enabling them to virtually participate in a measure of spatial respite beyond their prison walls and thereby compensating for what some prisoners miss the most: new memories.
