During the Summer of 2017, I participated in the Oculus Launch Pad program which was created to support diversity in VR development. After a weekend boot camp and several weeks of brainstorming, I began development on an interactive experience for GearVR using Tilt Brush and Unity. The goal of this project is to help spread awareness of emotional abuse.

I have continued to refine the concept and look for ways to leverage the power of presence and embodiment that is so unique to this medium. My hope is that this app creates opportunities for others to see they aren’t alone, or gives them a chance to understand the behavior before it happens to them.
