Final Year Project(s)
The Singapore Virtual Reality (VR) Project sees the user ‘going into’ a 19th century painting through the use of a VR headset. The user would be able to immerse themselves as a ‘visitor through time’, equipped with the ability to read the thoughts of the locals, and interact with certain historical objects.
It is hoped that this project will allow the user a greater appreciation of Singapore’s history and art history, and to encourage them to visit local museums.
