AISHATU'S VR ART GALLERY
Inspired by Hausa vernacular design
EXPERIENCE THE FIRST HAUSA VR SPACE!
Navigate around the gallery and enjoy my art in a VR space that is inspired by my cultural heritage and Africanfuturism.
These architectural marvels built by the Hausa tribe:
- Are rendered in mud and have clay walls
- Have colourful murals and engravings based on Hausa ornamental design
- Have handmade engravings that are abstract geometric forms
- Are embellished with 24-carat gold
HOW CAN WE DECOLONISE THE VIRTUAL?
Virtual reality has the potential to allow for individuals and communities that are burdened by the narrow field of expression dictated by Western knowledge production to use new forms of presentation which offer increased agency in the presentation of their worldviews.
