Dark Origins is a VR journey to the edge of knowledge, inviting people to experience the contested origins of life deep inside the Earth. The story shifts between human, bacterial, geological and machinic perspectives to unravel the scientific mysteries of extremophiles – creatures that thrive without any sunlight in extreme temperatures and pressures. These organisms could hold the key to resituating human life in the universe.
