Thomas Tucker presents "Virtual Sensory Convergence," a virtual ecosphere with its own living entities at this Friday's (10/9/20) Immersive Experiences meeting. Virtual Sensory Convergence takes an immersive virtual reality experience and extends that world outwards with behind-the-scenes theatrical and puppetry elements. Virtual creatures exist as physical props, employing VIVE tracking, and are puppeteered by a live performer. The project is a partnership between the Virginia Tech School of Visual Arts, Virginia Tech Institute For Creativity, Arts, and Technology, and the Victoria University of Wellington. Another CHCI faculty who works on the project is Meaghan A. Dee. More information is available here.
