“The mountains are calling, and I must go.”
- John Muir
Ascent VR is a contemplative climbing experience in virtual reality which, like a vertical zen garden, is a meditation on physicality, journeys, and the space around you. Developed in collaboration with my peers at Harvard, MIT, and the Berklee College of Music, Ascent VR is a brief morsel of virtuo-physical exploration. A snippet of serenity in cyber space. A virtual haiku.
