First Walk (Longest Walk)
1 of 1 Editions Available
This was my first and longest walk, when I didn't know how long it took to reach the edge. It ended up taking around an hour and a half because I got lost. This video is one hour of that walk. At the end of the video I still had no idea how far remained so I took off my headset and went to bed, returning to my crumpled avatar body to finish the trip the next day. This was the first metaverse edge where I jumped and recorded my leap. Filmed in Somnium Space.
