Our Home and Haunted Land

Our Home and Haunted Land

an exploration of space, memory and virtual reality

Capture from VR headset

Our Home and Haunted Land is a 10-minute linear virtual reality experience that examines the colonial histories embedded in the names of a number of Toronto spaces. It incorporates research-creation and decolonial methodologies to expose the violent legacy of the land we live on.

The project uses 3D photogrammetry scans of significant Toronto spaces rendered as point clouds as a starting point for the creation of virtual 3D environments.
