Virtual Parkway Forest Park
Virtual Parkway Forest Park is a public art project allowing community members who live near Parkway Forest Park to add immersive videos to a web app gallery of the park itself.
Between July 12, 2021 and September 4, 2021, Toasterlab will loan 360 VR Camera Kits and provide remote training to Parkway Forest families and individuals. Toasterlab is looking forward to working with anyone in the park’s surrounding area interested in exploring their relationship to the park, learning about VR video, and sharing their work with others.
Toasterlab will provide contactless drop-off and pick-up of equipment and sanitize it in between loan periods, using a Cleanbox designed for specifically for VR and recording equipment.
Toasterlab will also record activity in the park to add to the gallery. On September 25, 2021, Toasterlab will launch the virtual gallery/web app online. Community members can enjoy this virtual gallery on their own phones as they travel through the park or from their homes on a browser.
