This is an online event!
Virtual Parkway Forest Park” is a public art project allowing community members to add their stories, photos, and immersive videos to a web app gallery of the park itself. This project builds on the VR Workshop for Youth that Toasterlab conducted in 2018.
Throughout Summer 2021, Toasterlab will loan 360 VR cameras and provide remote group or individual training to Parkway Forest families and individuals. Toasterlab is looking forward to working with anyone in the park’s surrounding area interested in exploring their relationship to the park, learning about VR video, and sharing their work with others. Toasterlab will provide contactless drop-off and pick-up of equipment and sanitize it in between loan periods, using a Cleanbox designed for specifically for VR and recording equipment. Toasterlab will also record activity in the park to add to the gallery. Online filming will take place July 12 – August 31.
In September, Toasterlab will launch the virtual gallery/web app. Community members can enjoy this virtual gallery on their own phones as they travel through the park or from their homes on a browser.
Live captioning will be provided for the digital launch.
