Jeromy Hopgood and Jeremy Gibson Bond

A Collaboration That Resulted in a New Approach to Design Communication

You don’t have to look around very far these days to see news about virtual reality (VR) and how it’s revolutionizing our world. For almost as long as the technology has been available, people have asked about ways that VR can change how we experience live performances like theater or concert events. For the authors of this article, the question became not how it can change the performance, itself, but rather how it might change the ways in which we create those performances. Finding an answer led to the collaboration between Eastern Michigan University’s Jeromy Hopgood, and Michigan State University’s Jeremy Gibson Bond. They wanted to envision a new approach for using VR as a tool for facilitating design communication between designers and directors, as well as being a time and cost-saving pre-visualization tool.
