I worked with Andrew Yip as a VR programmer in Unity engine with the HTC Vive to create Haydens work ‘Together Again’, an interactive art piece where the artist was in a virtual world within the australian bush landscape, while also being within a cage shared with a dingo. The dingo was tracked in in VR space and shown virtually in the world as well.

This was an interesting piece to work on, and attracted a lot of attention during it’s performances in Sydney Contemporary 2017. My favourite part was having to test the dingo tracking with people pretending to be the dingo, as we had no access to the animal until installation day as per ethics constraints.
