I have a tumblr:

  • ur cardboard pet is a project for Google Cardboard using WebGL and Three.js, as well as hand-painted illustrations.
  • The user gazes into the eyes of their new virtual boyfriend (modeled on K-pop star Mark from Got7) and doesn’t care about anything else in the world. The physicality of the experience was designed to mimic the teen idol fantasy, including positioning the figure above eye level so that the user must physically look up to make eye contact.
  • I wanted to make something sincere that embraced VR headsets as isolating objects, rather than trying to pass them off as immersive experiences. Your new boyfriend isn’t real, but he’s nicer and cuter than anyone else in the room. And, if you get bored, just shake your phone for a new assortment of hair and accessories.
  • ur cardboard pet was installed at the new Powrplnt space in December 2015 for their inaugural art show. It can be viewed with any Google Cardboard compatible headset at: urcardboardpet.marthahipley.com. More info about later iterations available here and here
