Toad2 – LookingOutwards05

This is a VR experience in which viewers can experience what its like to be inside Modigliani’s 1919 studio at the Tate. I was really impressed by the amount of historical accuracy this project tried to achieve. For example they tried to get the exact texture of his actual paintings, so they had someone do forensic analysis to determine the exact type of paint was used and to get the correct topography on the painting based upon the way the canvas was stretched. I also think using the concept of VR to help understand the past or another person’s though process is really interesting. When I watched the video, I felt like I could understand why he made his color choices.
