Arilyn invites you to walk through the red velvet curtains into the Red Room and see the world change around you. This is our tribute to David Lynch, his work and the world he created in Twin Peaks.

“I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange.”

Enriching a story with augmented reality
Arilyn has long strived to provide tools for storytellers, using AR as a tool to enrich and continue a story. In this project, we created a virtual 3D space inspired by the famous TV-series Twin Peaks that would allow you to step into another world and marvel at its wonders.
As told by Arilyn creative director Otso Kähönen: "The work of David Lynch has always been a source of inspiration for me. Twin Peaks series was what ignited my interest in movies and led me to study film sound design. I was always fascinated by the thought of stepping into the realm of Twin Peaks. With the help of AR, I finally found a way to do so.
This project was created as an AR gate, which is a virtual gate you can walk through and experience an alternate reality. A kind of portal, and in a way also a homage to the work David Lynch and the alternate worlds he created. This was only the first step, but I can hardly contain myself thinking about the future of using AR for narrative storytelling may bring."
The content of the world was designed by Arilyn's 3D designer Linda Loukonen, and this project also functioned as her final project at Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. Because music was such an essential part of experiencing Twin Peaks as a whole, the wonderful Helsinki-based group Gasthaus Orkesteri composed and produced the music for this project.
We wish for nothing more than this video to one day reach Mr Lynch himself, so for anyone who may cross paths with him in the near or not-so-near future, feel free to invite him to step into the Mysterious Red Room through Augmented Reality!
