Almost one year ago, students of animation started a cooperation with the department of chemistry of Universität Kassel. The goal was to make chemical processes and reactions that surround us everyday accessible and comprehensible to a wide range of people. The result is a virtual reality game, in which the player acts as a forensic scientists and explores his environment up to its molecular components: Dead Herring.
In the 17th century escaped criminals used the smell of red herrings to confuse tracker dogs and cover their track.
Next week Dead Herring, as well as other projects of Kunsthochschule Kassel will be exposed in the Game Zone of the Festival of Animated Film Stuttgart.
