" To mark the Inauguration of the 45th President of the United States MacInnes Scott invite you to step into the Oval Office and meet President Trump. This historic site has been recreated down to the smallest detail and President Trump is the most photo-realist human you will see in virtual reality today. Explore what it feels like to be in the space where America's destiny has been shaped for the last 78 years and come face to face with the man who will determine America's fate for the next four."-MacInnes Scott
This Virtual Reality Art Piece entitled Wide Awake was created by the firm MacInnes Scott, a group out of LA consisting of former Call Of Duty devs. They are doing some very cutting edge work and have added the new Pres to that body of work. macinnesscott.com
It’s 2am in the Oval Office. The phone is ringing but nobody is picking up. President Trump is vigilent against the encroaching darkness. His focus is intense. Is he leaning against his desk in contemplation or pushing off towards an unknown future?
“VR is a new medium with the potential of being a movie or video game, a combination of both or something completely new,” says John MacInnes. “We see Trump In VR as art - a tableau vivant, in the American tradition of artists like Edward Hooper in painting, Gregory Crewdson and Cindy Sherman in photography. Unlike a painting and photography, you can interact with the art in virtual reality.”
MacInnes Scott's proprietary digital human 'maximum resolution' replication system utilizes HTC Vive's room scale and Epic's Unreal engine to render the character and environment in real-time 3D.
Wide Awake will be at the VR Society’s Art In VR exhibition with Sotheby’s in New York City this June.
The MacInnes Scott team recently added an update to Wide Awake.
