Home2Home is an immersive 360-degree online installation/artwork. It visually centres around the artist Ivan Riches experiences of living through lockdown. Its soundtrack consists of 6 disabled artist’s descriptions of their lockdown and how they strive to continue being creative.
As a culmination of the completed project all six artists along with Ivan Riches, will hold a panel discussion on Zoom. They will discuss their feelings about the artwork and how they may have had a direct impact on it’s outcome. They will also reflect on what has happened to them from when the project began and now. This will be followed by an interview with the artist by Colin Hambrook and a short Q&A. Watch the event on YouTube or Disability Arts Online’s Facebook Page.

Home2Home viewing instructions:
Home2Home is an immersive 360 degree artwork which can be accessed and experienced on YouTube via a PC, tablet and handset or headset.
On your desktop or laptop:
Open link to YouTube. You should see a circular icon in the top left hand corner of the screen [some browsers may display this as a hand symbol]. Use the right > left < , or up and down indicators within the icon to navigate the digital 360 degree artwork on YouTube. You can click or select and grab with your trackpad or mouse to enable you to navigate and scroll.
Tablets and handsets:
To view the artwork, make sure you are in your YouTube app (and not the Facebook player) on you device, otherwise you will only be viewing a screen version limited to a rectilinear strip.
Viewing Home2Home via your tablet/handset allows you to view the artwork within a 360 degree circle as if you are immersed in the artwork. Just move your device left and right or up and down.
Headsets can range in price and efficiency. If you already play virtual reality games, you are already set up but this can be an expensive option. There are much cheaper options of using a viewer into which you insert your handset including Google cardboard ranging from £5 upwards. For this option, all you need to do is move you head left to right and up or down.
