Create + Connect Virtual Reality Experience
8th September 2017 8/28/17 6:30 pm - 8/28/17 8:00 pm
Bold Park Community School and Create and Connect Arts Festival
Bold Park Community School’s Middle School students have created their very own Virtual Reality 360 experience. Immerse yourself in their ‘sit spots’, as they share places in nature with you on the campus, to sit and be mindful. This is a meditative practise shared throughout the school, from College students all the way down to the Pre-primary children. The immersive experience invites the audience to view nature from their own perspective and is guided by the student’s calming voices. The project was a collaborative learning experience embedded into their philosophy course with resident philosopher Peter Whyte, as they questioned how real is virtual reality?
The VR sit spot experience lasts just over 7 minutes and each viewing is for one individual only. You will be greeted by our students, who will assist you to place on a VR headset and guide you through their very own production. Virtual Reality has safety recommendations, so please consider the age advice below.
