We can learn a lot about the natural systems by regularly visiting places after they have burned. The 2016 Rey Fire started near the banks of the upper Santa Ynez River, providing an interesting view of a fire’s impacts on water systems and riparian growth. Ethan Turpin returns periodically to take 360 degree photos of specific sites in the burn scar. Using these immersive image sets, David Gordon programs a virtual reality experience for users. While looking into a VR headset, visitors may turn their heads look around on all sides within a monthly progression of regrowth.
