The Home Screen

Virtual Reality Tour of a Doll’s House

Date: June 2020
Medium: Mixed Media
Inspiration: Nostalgia

The Home Screen records the childhood of the digital generation, in miniature, giving one a virtual tour of the digital ‘good old days’. This is illustrated through an interactive historic tour of a doll's house, which uses obsolete digital technologies as inspiration for the interior design.

Doll’s houses have been used throughout history to reflect the lives of the owners and makers, and The Home Screen serves as a visual record of how deeply technology has become embedded in modern daily life.

The tour, script, and wallpapers were designed by Kate Wixley. The Home Screen can be interacted with on its website, designed for browser viewing.
