Homes (Work in Progress)
30-year Personal Memory Project in VR
Ever since I was 13 years old I have been writing to my older self with the goal of the pen and paper becoming my personal time travel machine. As I grew up, I started using photography, video, and sound as tools to capture time in a more immersive way. When I discovered the power of Virtual Reality I taught myself 3D modeling and Game Engine Programs and started creating my current home in VR.
It is my hope that when I'm 60 years, I will be able to walk through my time and space, experiencing messages from my younger self in the homes I've lived in. After creating my homes in as much detail as I can, I will add them in the same physical space in a game engine - Opening one door in one Home can take me into the past or future Home across the world in one step.
Homes say a lot about the people who live in it - The way it is created and used is very personal. My homes have always been an inside out version of my mind and become a museum of stories of my past.
