College For Creative Studies (US), Graduate User Experience (UX) Design Program

Virtual voyage through the city of Detroit’s authentic cultural identity

The Detro Tune exhibition is conceptualized as an audio-visual virtual voyage through the city of Detroit’s music history, subcultural anatomy and authentic cultural identity. To achieve such a unique experience, we expose the audience to multisensory stimuli powered by various media technologies such as virtual and mixed reality. This eternal Detroit placed in a timeless virtual space aims to immerse us into the cultural habitus that shaped a fruitful era of fresh and influential ideas and innovations.

The projects are College For Creative Studies’ MA/MFA User Experience Design student’s work.
