“War Up Close” at the International VR Forum in Oslo

On March 9th, Mykola Omelchenko, the photographer of “War Up Close,” presented our project at the international VR Oslo forum in the capital of Norway. The participants included leading professionals from the industry representing different countries worldwide, including speakers from NASA and the MARS space program. Mykola delivered a presentation of our project to an audience of over a hundred people, showcasing how we use VR technology to document Russian crimes on Ukrainian territory. The audience was pleasantly impressed by the quality of our work and the idea itself, as no one had done anything similar before. We received numerous positive feedback and offers of technical support.

VR Oslo is an annual international forum that took place on March 8-9 at the Forskningsparken technology park, bringing together 30 participants and 46 speakers from Norway, Finland, the USA, Israel, Austria, France, Canada, and Ukraine. Initiated in 2015, the forum aims to highlight the latest achievements in the field of virtual reality and its applications in various industries.

Previously, the “War Up Close” team had the opportunity to present the project and showcase horrifying footage of Ukrainian infrastructure destruction at immersive exhibitions held in Washington, Berlin, Paris, and Warsaw.
