The Bodice Project is an exhibit of handcrafted sculptures that represent individual breast cancer survivor’s stories created by eight artists. Students in an AR/VR class at West Virginia University’s Reed College of Media worked on an immersive walking tour of the project’s exhibit in Spring 2019. This innovative form of media brings the project to new heights by reaching a larger audience that its founders wouldn’t be able to reach otherwise. This allows more people broadly to see the work from the artists and hear the stories behind the art.
“The Bodice Project” received first place in the Broadcast Education Association’s 2020 Festival of Media Arts competition Interactive Reality category, and bronze in The Telly Awards Immersive and Mixed Reality General Student category. Read the press release here.
