Twitch vr voices

ITP Fall 2018

live web, hello computer, performative avatars

In the future, I anticipate spending more and more time in a headset, so I wanted to explore different ways in which we can create feelings of co-presence in virtual spaces. By logging onto twitch, users can follow my stream in real-time and send me pink chat message bubbles that fall into my scene. When I touch the bubbles, their messages are voiced and broadcast back out through the Twitch stream.
