A 3D virtual tour of Pentridge Prison’s B-Division in Melbourne, Victoria was created using 3D scanning software by Phoria. Produced by Atalanti Films, it looks at how to bring the spectator closer to the experience of what the inside of a high security prison looks like.
This piece was created as part of a transmedia narrative project titled, ‘A Miscarriage of Justice’, produced by Atalanti Dionysus, which looks at the execution of Ronald Ryan, the last man hung in Australia 1957, and Jean Lee, the last woman hung in Australia 1951. It uses immersive digital technologies virtual reality and augmented reality to execute the story. Projected installations, interactive newspapers and 3D scanning software also compliment the storytelling.
Phase one of this project immerses you in the experience of being in a prison cell, with every little texture viewable in 3D.
Phase two of this project will bring you face to face with prisoners and their stories, all viewable via a VR headset.
Created as part of a PhD led thesis project by Atalanti Dionysus.
