MEMORY/PLACE: MY HOUSE is an installation which features a navigable virtual reality representation of my childhood home, recreated in 3d using home movies, diaries, and photographs as source material. Using primarily a set of videos from 1988 and 1989 taken by my dad, who later died in that home after suffering from dementia, I stitched together photos and videos which are triggered by the users' presence.

In making this I was imagining the emotional impact that future archiving technologies could have on personal memories in the wake of Facebook's 2014 purchase of Oculus VR.
