Room scale VR, 2018
By Benjamin Seide, Ross Williams and Elke Reinhuber

A tropical garden in Singapore - not as it exists in a photorealistic representation but in our vision and in our memory:
The Yunnan garden on NTU campus is currently undergoing redevelopment. Its design was inspired by Chinese Garden architecture with pavilions, monuments and in particular an intriguing structure of forking paths.
With this project, we embraced and even enhanced glitches which result from an approach to capture the garden for an immersive virtual reality experience with photogrammetry from eye level and birds eye view.
Walk around to explore the monuments, greenery but also jump into pavilions and caves and listen to the soundscape to stimulate your fantasy how it might feel to be in a garden in which history and future merge.
Gone Garden has been exhibited during the Beyond Festival at ZKM Karlsruhe, October 2018 and at V&A Digital Futures in London, July 2018
