The Labyrinth
[Work in Progress] As part of my final capstone project for Interactive Media Arts, tentatively titled The Labyrinth, I created a virtual reality experience that explores immersion in the form of mirrors. In the style of Inception, the experience is an exploration of mirrors within mirrors within mirrors. In a deeper sense, my capstone is a journey into the question of virtual reality itself. Is VR a simple reflection of reality?

The Last Star System
The Last Star System is an exploration of a galactic amusement park located at the corner of the universe. The Last Star System explores the vast unknown of space, by populating the emptiness with an absurdist representation of planets, interstellar travel, and the role of humanity in the larger scheme of the lifetime of our universe. The player flies through the star system, interacts with objects on each surface, and receives information on the habitability of the worlds. The enormity of the universe provides fodder for creativity and with Virtual Reality the player is transported into the minds of the artists. We explore how objects in our everyday environment can be removed from their functionality. Taken to one extreme, cannot a Magic 8 Ball planet exist in reality? Cannot Campbell soup cans attack from the sky?

The Dark Room
The Dark Room is the first VR experience I ever made in partnership with classmate Tyler Finley. In the experience, the user is immersed in darkness, unable to see anything at all. They must follow the sounds in order for things to be illuminated. Playing on the fear of the dark and the expectation of terror, The Dark Room aims to leave its user disturbed and unnerved.

City Therapy VR
City Therapy VR is a low-cost, accessible virtual reality physical therapy treatment. Current physical therapy routines for broken bones and replaced hips are dull and painful, with no method of distraction or motivation. With the $20 Google Cardboard, a smartphone, and an Arduino, patients can look forward their daily physical therapy routine, now a city-building virtual reality game controlled by the movements of the limb being stretched. In the Cardboard headset, the patient is introduced to the game, where they become a mayor at a desolate city they must rebuild. As the therapy progresses, the game encourages greater range of motion with a reward system. The greater the angle of movement, the more efficiently the buildings will be destroyed, and the more the created buildings will tower over the others.

Urbanomino
Urbanomino explores how a city building game, like SimCity, might function when the people, the businesses, and developers of a city have a stake in shaping their city. By using a voting system, Urbanomino introduces an element of organic unpredictability to simulating the growth of a modern urban environment.
