A Platform-Fluid Avatar Study.

How can our identities persist while moving between disparate virtual realities? Our digital lives are so fragmented across various platforms that retaining a consistent identity can be challenging. Attempts to take our avatars with us where ever we go has become an increasingly important consideration.

This study aimed to create procedural avatars that can be used across a wide variety of use cases; as high-end CG rendered from Houdini, in dynamic real-time game engine integrations like Unity or Unreal Engine or even for usage in real-time social web3.0 platforms.
