The Drawing Room
De Bijenkorf
Virtual Reality | 2015

Together with Dutch Artist Jan Rothuizen and Interactive Director Sara Kolster, I collaborated on a hand-drawn Virtual Reality Experience at Zesbaans. This project was developed for Dutch luxury department store De Bijenkorf as part of their art program and was exhibited as a temporary installation at their flagship store in Amsterdam.

In this project, I was responsible for translating Jan Rothuizen's ink on paper drawings into 3D within Unity. As our first venture into VR, we were thrilled with the positive response from viewers. Our efforts were recognized with an award for Digital Storytelling at the prestigious IDFA. The Drawing Room is now available in the Oculus Store for others to experience.
