Virtuaaliseen todellisuuteen sijoittuva katkelma hybridigenreisestä spekulatiivisen fiktion teoksesta 6-foot pine: life and romance in the chrondemic age. Katkelma on hahmon toiselle hahmolle antama lahja, vaatekaapista löytyvä virtuaalinen todellisuus. A piece located in virtual reality from a hybrid-genre speculative fiction work, 6-foot pine: life and romance in the chrondemic age.
In a vignette from my hybrid-genre story, 6-foot pine: life and romance in the chrondemic age, a virtual reality room is created in an old storage closet as a gift from one character to another. In the hope of creating an immersive experience for my readers, I made an initial proof-of-concept “VR room” in Adobe Dimension and “walked through it” via augmented reality using Adobe Aero. Unsatisfied with the depth of the experience, I imported the room into Unity with AR Foundation to more deeply recreate themes from the story, including floating lights and sparrow-balloons. Feeling that the experience had become too sterile, I rerecorded the AR experience outdoors, used Premiere Pro to merge the Unity and Aero experiences together, and added my voiceover of the original text.
