Controversial urban planning project consequences

Summary

“When I put it on, I find myself sitting opposite a woman in a grainy armchair. The woman explains how she might be forced to leave her home when the construction of the HS2 high-speed rail link starts. “I’ll have to go into residential care … and that’s frightening,” she says. She continues talking as I examine her scant possessions, and then glide over her shoulder into St James’ Gardens; the ground disappears beneath me as I soar above the trees while streams of red and blue light show the projected route of the new line… But while VR is undoubtedly full of promise, how much does documenting the potential fallout from a controversial urban planning project such as HS2 actually impact whether they become reality?”
