A virtual reality application developed as part of the Nina, a travelling public installation for the Montreux Jazz UNESCO digital archives. The VR storytelling app contextualizes the festival, it's unique location and rich history in an immediate and playful way.

To make the VR setup intuitive and autonomous, we re-designed it as a public binocular with a corresponding physical mountain map. From one vantage point, users can zoom in and out of the landscape to discover 8 interactive stories featuring historic content from the Montreux Jazz Festival photo archive.

Scene-o-scope was my MAS thesis project at EPFL. In preparation for this application, we conducted a 6-month research project on case studies and UX for virtual reality and public digital installations. We also prototyped and conducted UX tests on several VR scenarios. The Scene-o-scope was validated with UX tests in collaboration with the psychology department at the University of Fribourg.

The custom VR setup allows for easy handling in public space and for it to closely mimic a binocular (with a scrolling feature on the side) so users could zoom into and out of the environment with a familiar interaction.

The setup also featured a mountain map of the key places in the virtual view so users could talk and point out places to instruct others where to look. The stand has two arms, allowing users to rest their elbows on it.

A large part of the concept revolved around creating an autonomous VR experience for public space, meaning that it needed to be immediately understandable and percievable to users in under 10 seconds as a large portion of viewers will only peek inside. The diagrams below show the app logic in order to satisfy a large target group with different use cases.
