At Lowlands 2016, festival visitors had the opportunity to experience a VR game we created, devised by René van Engelenburg from DROPSTUFF in collaboration with Het Mauritshuis.

The experience includes a physical British red telephone box, in which an old cinema chair is placed. Upon entering the phone booth, the visitor can take a seat and put on a VR headset. When the user dives into the virtual world, he sees himself inside of the same phone booth in virtual reality. After a short introduction, the virtual phone booth is positioned in the forecourt of Het Mauritshuis, which we visualized using a modeling technique called ‘Photogrammetry’. All of the sudden, the booth starts to shake and transports the user to a virtual representation of the widely known artwork ‘De Muziekles’ from Johannes Vermeer, a famous Dutch painter. In this painting the user can observe a woman playing the virginal and trigger certain events with a swoosh of a virtual magic paint brush.

Lowlands’ festival goers were very enthusiastic about the virtual reality experience. Several of them said they had the feeling as if they had been away from the festival for an amount of time, to find themselves in a whole new immersive world.
