GARGOYLE DOYLE

VR+AR NARRATIVE

This interactive narrative takes the visitor back and forth between scenes in augmented reality and virtual reality. In production now, the prototype experience was a selection of the Venice Film Festival’s Gap Financing Market in 2022.

Doyle is a grouchy, self-important gargoyle with a chip on his shoulder – quite literally, as he was badly damaged in a fall during his installation above the cathedral’s main entrance. Relegated to a forgotten back alcove with other “irregular” gargoyles, Doyle resents the hand life dealt him, especially the fact that he is stuck two feet from Chet, a decorative metal rain gutter. Chet is the yin to Doyle’s yang, a chatterbox optimist who never shuts up. Ever.
