The experience was created for our company’s stand in QSP Summit 2017, we have a physical swing and Oculus Rift VR gear. The person can experience what would be a swing in the clouds. seeing the city of Porto from above, and the building where the conference was held.
While in the same swing, the user is transported to an alternative galaxy, exploring the connection between the real world and an abstract/digital world, with elements that are reactive to the music.
Concept and Moodboard
We wanted to explore virtual reality further including its connection to real world objects, we were able to track and mimic the simple movement of a swing and use this to create a new audiovisual experience. Besides wanting to give the sensation of being high above in the clouds, we also were searching for a second meaning, like an expansion of the real world in which the digital connects to the mind and inspiration, making this short experience have a virtual world inside a virtual world.
First we needed to create a skybox for our "real world", based on a real location. After creating the textures, we converted the cubemap.
Testing on audio reactive elements.
I worked in some generative motions with a digital feel, to use as textures in 3d elements.
