Encountering the Unknown: A VR Experience


Encountering the Unknown: A VR Experience

Student Study Area
Ground Floor, Arts West


Encountering the Unknown is a Virtual Reality experience that tells the story of Alexander the Great’s personal voyage in his campaign against the Persian Empire.

Alexander communed with gods and heroes all along the way, in a fantasy-entwined journey towards Asia. His venture can be understood as one man’s quest to follow in the footsteps of the mythical past, into the Unknown.

A perfect experience for those interested in history as well as the emerging worlds of Virtual Reality.

This is a drop-in session; no bookings required.
