Rehabilitation sanatorium "Sadgorod" is located in a picturesque forest zone on the shore of the Amurskiy Bay in the suburbs of Vladivostok. It began to receive its first patients in 1971. Within its walls, a unique technique was used to treat patients with spinal injuries. The health resort now in a non-stop decay under the influence of a powerful force of destruction: human indifference and parasitism.

The immersive VR project “Zdravnitsa” allows not only to examine the organism of the sanatorium and its sound memories from the inside through three immersive scenarios but also to associate participant's personal experiences with the physical state of the building’s “health” at the moment of presence.
