Through interactions with beautifully hand painted objects and environments, travers time and dimensions through the bittersweet legacy of a remarkable woman’s life.
Phoebe Titus is a VR creator based in Vancouver, BC. Her work evolved from a foundation in fine art and illustration into an exploration of moving images. This led her to a career in animation and colour grading for film and TV, but she felt drawn to explore interactive media.
She collaborated with the Hedgerow Theatre company in Pennsylvania from 2015-2018 to create animated sets to interact with performers. In 2019 she took that interaction further by moving into VR where she can give the audience a first hand experience with her work. Hickory Horned Devil is her first narrative VR experience.
