EmojiFlower VR 😀🌺
Have you ever wanted to live in a musical wonderland of flowers and Emoji? Now you can. EmojiFlower is an art-game that combines 90s music video interiors and Interactive Emoji set in Virtual Reality with music. 😀🌺 is experienced with Google Cardboard.
EmojiFlower VR😀🌺 was featured at emojicon 2016!
The piece was started as a Virtual Reality research project with Gray Area Foundation for Art and Technology. I've been working on learning Unity for creating VR 3D worlds. The environment was based on a 90s interior spread in NEST magazine that I felt captures the zeitgeist of the 90s. I added in Emoji because they express for me the culmination of culture in the last decade. Emoji are something wonderful that we embraced in the 2000s. 😀🌺 is a rumination and celebration of the possibility, joy, and strangeness of twenty first century American culture.
