A Collaboration between students at the University of Seville and West Virginia University
West Virginia University and EUSA students explored ways to tell stories by creating digital twins, or 3D models, of real locations in Morgantown and Seville during the 2022 collaboration.
They used widely-available and inexpensive phone-based digital scanning apps to quickly create the models, then built narratives based upon the locations. Due to the students’ wide-ranging interests — from game and interactive design to journalism and filmmaking — the results were surprising and extremely creative. They used simple scrolling interactions and Sketchfab to build their projects while exploring innovative storytelling techniques.
