Journey Through the Camps
VR Experience for Carnegie Mellon University | HTC Vive | July 2017 - July 2018
Journey Through the Camps is a VR experience that takes users through the spaces of the Holocaust, and gives them the chance to see these sites in context, hear survivor testimony, and understand the history beyond what film and books can provide.
Using computer animation recreated from reference materials (photographs, videos, etc), we wanted to produce an experience that brought students into the history much in the same way that students who visit Holocaust sites in Europe do when they tour the camps. We worked closely with our client to produce a piece that inspired students to learn more about the history, and something that professors could use to augment their curriculum in the classroom.
Journey Through the Camps is currently on display at Carnegie Mellon University in the Askwith Kenner Room.
