Urban Illusions is an experimental interactive VR documentation based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and the surrounding events that received national news coverage in July, 2016. The intent of this work is to document the artist’s real-life experiences and share them through a virtual lense to engage, educate, and inspire the viewer to have a more personal experience of their own. Could this be the start of how historical events and information are experienced in the near future?
