For the exhibition I showcased my VR project: Nice to be Here.
Nice to be Here is an immersive Virtual Reality experience designed to raise awareness of endangered species in New England. Below are some photographs taken from the exhibtion.
In the virtual landscape you can find the 12 federally-listed species are currently protected in New England: Canada Lynx, Eastern Cougar, Gray Wolf, Indiana Bat, Northern Long-eared Bat, Atlantic Coast Piping Plover, Red Knot, Roseate Tern, Bog Turtle, Northern Redbelly Cooter, Atlantic Salmon, Karner Blue Butterfly.
Using my custom-designed augmented reality app viewers will be able to look through their phones to trigger a QR code which will allow you to enter into the VR experience. Using this transition means that you start the experience in a more comfortable space, before entering into the VR world. The QR code is the homepage of a website I have designed. The website contains further information on these endangered species and links to conservation efforts in New England. The website is also where you download the app from.
