Portrait of My Grandma

A VR Storytelling Experience

My first VR project is an environmental documentation of my grandma's life. She was born during WWII and fought through a lot of hardship to become a pediatrician. I grew up listening to her stories so often that they became a major part of my childhood memories.

I now live halfway across the globe away from her and miss her a lot. I took this project as an opportunity to relive the stories that she told me and to share it with the world.

As this was a reflection on childhood tales, I chose to make this a cartoony and lighthearted experience. I made most of the 3D models myself, supplementing with 3D assets downloaded from the Asset Store for more complex models.

Process

My partner and I wanted to use this opportunity to explore different alternative interfaces, especially in the context of games.
