Explorable dynamic VR archive. This version exposes the life end work of the artist.
NAKED IN PARADISE is a Unity3D build allowing the construction of one’s own immersive and interactive VR database using media assets such as photos and videos (rectangular or spherical), sounds, texts, 3D objects… The software automatically and dynamically organizes these assets based on a variety of configurations: on a timeline, by categories, random, etc… The elements of the database are spectacularly organized and reorganized in real-time by simply selecting the desired display mode from within the experience. In addition, the assets metadata allow the creators of a database to grant or restrict access to areas or documents based on predetermined criteria such as visitors profile or behaviour as they progress through the database. NAKED IN PARADISE, the current iteration of the explorable dynamic VR archive, illustrates the life and work of COURCHESNE. The title expresses the pleasures provided by the potential to fully expose vast amounts of information in such a way to embrace the whole as well a to dive in and explore any of it’s discrete elements. In its current form, the VR database is downloadable as a Unity build and plays on the current Oculus Rift gear.
