The Objective

  • In solidarity with Breonna Taylor's family,  we transitioned Breonna’s Garden from augmented reality to virtual reality and created an immersive space of healing for all presented at AWE 2022. 
  • The experience starts as you are invited into Breonna's Room, a photogrammetry room that exists in the family home to honor her memory. Breonna's mother and her boyfriend tell you about Breonna. The experience continues through a portal to the Garden. The Garden is a sacred space brimming with flowers, butterflies, and stories about Breonna from family and friends. Walk along the path and step on the large stones to hear them. 
  • Create a space for healing around traumatic experiences for anyone to access
