Watch footage of Universal Everything's immersive VR experience

This captioned video shows a virtual reality experience created by Universal Everything, where a 5,000-strong crowd of simulated humans surges and swarms in response to the user's movements.

The immersive VR film is an adaptation of the artwork called Emergence, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival as part of the New Frontiers showcase of experimental media.

Viewers took part in the performance using a VR headset to explore what the studio describes as "the primal desire to maintain your individual identity whilst being part of a crowd".
