Dave Persue Highlights Gun Violence for MTV’s Open Your Eyes Campaign

Yesterday VRFocus reported on MTV running a campaign called Elect This in the run up to the US presidential election. As part of it MTV has collated as series of virtual reality (VR) art pieces using Google’s Tilt Brush, called Open Your Eyes. Everyday a new artist is showcased, with a video interview with the artist, a video walkthrough and the final 3D model on Sketchfab. Yesterday VRFocus showed Illma Gore and her piece Who’s Watching Who Watches Us?, and today its Dave Persue with his artwork Wrong Hands, which looks at gun violence.

First up is a short video interview with Persue in which he explains his concept: “We’ve made great strides as Americans, but when it comes to guns, and violence with them, it’s like taking steps back.

“My piece is that of domestic violence against women.”

The next video below is a quick run though of Wrong Hands.

Finally there’s the full Sketchfab 3D model, allowing viewers to completely explore the piece at their own leisure.

All the pieces of art will be showcased on Sketchfab, which can be viewed on a monitor, or via head-mounted displays (HMDs) like Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.

VRFocus will be bringing you further artworks from the MTV campaign as it progresses.
