I Am Afraid

I Am Afraid is a networked virtual reality application (currently for the Daydream platform) where multiple people can create interactive sound sculptures using their own voice.

Words are recorded and rendered as textual objects in the environment. Non-word sounds can also be recorded and are represented as abstract paper ball-like objects. The word objects can be played back through touch at any speed, direction, position. Paper balls loop their sounds when touched.

Custom loops through words and paper balls can be drawn, recorded, and played back, creating a layered soundscape that evolves dynamically through interactive and collaborative actions.

The application can be used for voice and sound exploration/composition, and performance.



Manipulation is a Digital Puppetry Theatre piece where motion tracked objects (proptics) and performers created a performance that was both virtual and physical.  The performance was part of the 2016 Vancouver Fringe Festival and took place in the Motion Capture Studio of Emily Carr University of Art + Design. It consisted of three 15-minute acts, each with an increasing amount of physical performance. All three acts used tracked physical objects and bodies to puppeteer virtual objects or characters in a virtual story world. The virtual world was projected on a screen behind the performers.
