I love poetry, for a few lines of words it creates imaginary worlds in one’s mind. Now with Virtual Reality, it is possible for you to immersive yourself in the world the poem creates and experience the passions, hope or expressions through visuals and sound. How cool is that! This project is my new exploration project in VR. It’s still in process, but I’d like to show the works I did so far.
I worked on this project in Unity with Google Cardboard SDK. This video shows a user’s visual exploration path in the poetic environment. The visual development and environment design is my adaptations from the poem The Wild Swans at Coole by William Butler Yeats. Stylized nature pack, maple tree and swan model assets are from Unity Assets store.
Audio above is from Pearls Of Wisdom Poetry Reading on Youtube. It's a great audio piece to match with the visuals. https://youtu.be/T8zl8WFtR-k
