Getting To Know You is an art app for iPhone and Android (also coming soon, Google Cardboard VR version for Android). The app tells a story through the exploration of obscure and moving landscapes. The camera in the virtual world is mapped to the rotation of your device, so users must move around to make their way through the world. I began developing GTKY at the Banff Artist in Residence program in August of 2014. In August 2015, I presented a Google Cardboard Virtual Reality viewer implementation of the app at the ISEA 2015 conference in Vancouver, Canada.
This is an installation of an early version of the app in the Philosopher’s Knoll at Banff. I projected the iPad onto a wall so that other viewer’s could watch as one person interacted with the app.
