I am a CG Animator and Modeller discovering VR and 360 video. I came into the MA knowing I wanted to explore VR. My work is based around relaxation to dissipate stress and anxiety with nature. The piece is a 360 Animated CG Environment with natural sounds, that will be displayed on youtube allowing for free use and easy accessibility.
I decided to do this because of the rising understanding and acceptance of wide spread anxiety and stress related conditions in modern society. With my work I wanted to draw attention to the effects nature has on our mental function and try to bring nature to places it cant easily exist or be visited. With just 5-10 minuets of exposure to natural land scape the brain is able to re-set allowing anxiety and stress levels to decrease dramatically.
By making something that can be viewed by anyone anywhere in a non expensive and accessible way everyone can benefit. Be it in a lunch break of a stressful day, patients in hospital or even just city dwellers the possibilities are endless.
