Day 35 - Embodied Creativity - Poetry and Ethics in VR presentation

Reality is where your body is...and it is everywhere.

Used Quill to give a presentation on presence, embodiment and art at the “Poetry and Ethics in VR” event. 
I recreated the venue and the amazing art by the host Eva Davidova to explain how your body is present even during the most abstract thought process. I believe VR is not a denial, but a rediscovery of the wisdom that comes from our material selves. 
This is a short version with original soundtrack.
The lecture took place February 8th, 2019.
Thanks to all the other amazing poets and creators and to Eva for this awesome night.

Day 33 - Metropolitan Avenue - Quill Animation

-Modeled and animated in Quill
On a late night in August 2018, I’ve met this guy playing his guitar. It was such a quintessential New York moment that I decided to record it as a token of my new life in this city. Now I recreated that moment inside VR using Quill. Again memories come to life while immersed in VR. 
I hope I meet the Guitarman again. The rat, I’m not so sure.
