Interactive 3D Virtual Reality Installation
Finnish Pavilion at Paris World Fair in 1900 is a 3D reconstruction of the pavilion explored in virtual reality environment. The reconstruction is a three-dimensional, digital installation presented in virtual reality environment. Wearing circular polarization glasses and using natural human gestures, the visitor is able to access a space created using stereoscopic display.
The virtual model of the pavilion can be examined both inside and outside. Spatial sounds are used to make the experience feel real, as if one were moving inside a historical building. Inside the pavilion model there are digital three-dimensional replicas of some artifacts that were exhibited in Paris. At the time they represented the best Finnish design, construction and crafting skill.
