Thomas Tucker presents "Virtual Sensory Convergence," a virtual ecosphere with its own living entities. Virtual Sensory Convergence takes an immersive virtual reality experience and extends that world outwards with behind-the-scenes theatrical and puppetry elements. Virtual creatures exist as physical props, employing VIVE tracking, and are puppeteered by a live performer. The project is a partnership between the Virginia Tech School of Visual Arts, Virginia Tech Institute For Creativity, Arts, and Technology, and the Victoria University of Wellington.
