Blurring documentary with fantastical fiction, Vanitas is a smartphone procedural thriller told through the secret language of flowers. Follow the narrators across the city as they track down experts and evidence, trying to fill a mysterious void at the heart of their inquiry.
Vanitas stretches across the glass of your phone, up your finger, through your body and into the world. Sit back and listen, or follow your own leads. Where does Vanitas end and the real world begin?
