The Night Cafe
The Night Cafe is an immersive virtual reality environment that allows you to explore the world of Vincent van Gogh first hand. Take a moment to enjoy his iconic sunflowers in three dimensions or walk around the chair he painted in his bedroom to see it from another angle. Step into the vivid colors straight from his palette. While creating the environments of these paintings in 3D space the creators had to expand on areas that can’t be seen; rooms behind doors, objects hidden from view, people turned away from the viewer. It’s been an interesting process to imagine what might have been there, just off the edges of the canvas.
What Works Well
A simple experience, but a perfect demonstration of how virtual reality can transform how we consume art.

Level of Interactivity
What does this mean?
The Level of Interactivity indicates how many interactive features an experience has.
For instance, a Level 1 would be a more passive experience where you will be able to look around freely, but you will not be triggering or interacting with things in the environment. A Level 2 will provide some level of interactivity but only very basically, such as being able to move between different scenes in the experience. A Level 3 will start to incorporate some more complex interactions using a remote or controller to trigger things within the scenes. A Level 4 would be a fully interactive experience but something you are still guided through. Finally, a Level 5 would be a fully interactive experience that gives you complete control of how to use it.
