‘The Dawn of Art’ Takes You On A VR Journey Voiced By Daisy Ridley From Star Wars
Atlas V in partnership with Novelab, Google, and SMERGC have released a new VR experience called The Dawn of Art voiced by Daisy Ridley from the new Star Wars Saga.
In the experience you’ll explore the Chauvet Cave 36,000 years ago, with Daisy Ridley’s voice as your guide. It’s in the Ardèche gorges, in the south of France, that our ancestors drew humanity’s first masterpieces, giving life to their beliefs.
The Dawn of Art
Our humanity’s first masterpiece was created 36, 000 years ago in Ardèche, France. Within Chauvet Cave lie 1000 drawings, enclosed forever. Would you like to meet your prehistoric ancestors, these humans who ventured in a deep subterranean world? Would you like to meet the cave bear, the real host of the Chauvet Cave, a giant of the ice age who left thousands of scratches and footprints in the cave?
Let Daisy Ridley accompany you in the Chauvet Cave, a Unesco World Heritage Site. Daisy is your guide to discover, through a movie and then on a guided visit, the universe of our ancestors. The Cave’s discovery in 1994 is considered as one the greatest scientific breakthroughs of the XXth century.
“The Dawn of Art” is a Virtual Reality experience, including both an immersive film and a virtual visit of the cave.
The Dawn of Art is a free VR experience that you can download on both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
