    A New Jerusalem is an interactive and immersive virtual reality installation that seeks to embody the spirit of the new Jerusalem as described in the Book of Revelation. The artwork manifests as a beautiful and illuminated metropolis that is based upon Revelation’s architectural descriptions, and is generated in real-time using Unity3D and Flash. The installation is experienced through two distinct perspectives as witnessed and related by the Book's narrator, John the Seer: an external ‘projected’ view of the city descending from heaven and an internal ‘personal’ view of the city witnessed through an Oculus Rift VR headset.
