About The Artist

Charity Everett- Creative Technologist and Storyteller

 

Charity Everett is a Creative Technologist, Storyteller, Performer, and Research Fellow at MIT Open Documentary Lab and Graduate Learning Fellow at Harvard University’s Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning through their Reality Lab. She was recently awarded the 2019 Nextant Rising Star Prize by the Virtual World Society for her work to better the world using AR and VR. She is also involved with the History Design Studio at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Studies at Harvard. She spoke on a panel on the Future of Civic Design an Immersive Technology with Dr. Cornel West. She explores the connection between humanity and technology, and connects seemingly disparate dots using XR (AR/VR/MR). Her project Go Back Fetch It sees itself as a storytelling entrypoint into an XR narrative that blends art, data visualization, dance, and interactivity in a universe that connects interactive projects together to push the boundaries of interactive narrative and immersive documentary.  She has given presentations at AR in Action at the MIT Media Lab, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, the Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco, Spatial Reality: Artists Explore the Future of XR in Pasadena, The Digital Futures Consortium at Harvard’s event Art Tech Psyche IV and the upcoming Art Tech Psyche V, and at the Afropunk sponsored event Reist(D)ance. She was selected as a 2016 Oculus Launchpad Fellow, an IDEA New Rochelle Resident, and was selected as an AR VR Women Futurist in Residence.

This is a dual AR enabled wood burned art piece that mixes data visualization, dance, and teaches geography and human migratory patterns.

Harvard Astrophysics HoloLens
This was a collaboration with the Harvard Astrophysics Department to use the newly released HoloLens AR headset for visualization.
VR 360 Music Video
This project was my first attempt at creating a virtual world and using space to tell a story. I effectively captured an emotion while incorporating music in a visually arresting immersive environment. This was my first step in effective reality-building and it ended up getting me selected for the inaugural cohort of the Oculus Launchpad program.
