A trove of vintage snapshots from the Twin Towers observation deck was discovered at an estate sale, then scanned and remapped in Unity to create a surrealistic landscape in an app for Oculus Go. You step into an unfamiliar familiar, seagulls call overhead, A snail at your feet guides you, another familiar. Grasp the handrail. Wind from a small fan blows through your hair.
