Virtual Experience Designer

Virtual reality (VR) blocks a person’s experience of the real physical world around them. Imagine wearing a blindfold that also covers your ears and treats you to sights, sounds, and experiences created by technicians, designers, software, and hardware. Virtual Experience Designer Matt Brennan, whose degrees are in informatics and architecture, recreates works of art and buildings. He travels to places like Rome and Paris to photograph museum pieces, churches, and town halls and then creates VR adventures that allow other people to see the art he photographed in three dimensions, as though they’re standing next to it and walking around it.
