This thesis contains a detailed visual record of my virtual reality (VR) work entitled “Lost in Translation.” I use 180-degree panoramas to capture the essence of the work. “Lost in Translation” is an attempt to understand better and ultimately accept events from my early teenage years, that after much introspection and therapy, I believe to have negatively impacted much of my adult life. This is a seated VR experience that reflects on themes of identity and place through interaction with objects and various media from the artist’s childhood memories of immigrating from Poland to the United States.
