During the Fall 2017 semester we worked with Professor Patricia Saldarriaga’s FYSE 1500A: Apocalyptic Representations class. The course explored theories and representations of “apocalyptic imagination” across many forms of media, including virtual reality. On Thursday, December 14th, students from the class gathered in the lobby of the Davis Family Library to present their final projects, virtual worlds representing the Apocalypse.
We recommend coming to the Library and immersing yourself in these worlds using the Oculus in LIB 240B. The worlds can also be explored using an up-to-date web3d-enabled browser. Here are some samples of the students’ work, along with links to all of the presented projects.
