Apple Vision Pros being used in First Literature Project exhibit 

the Apple Vision Pro launches in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and the U.K. on Friday, July 12, and demos will be available at Apple retail stores.

The Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York, has announced the First Literature Project exhibit, the first VR media produced in the Shinnecock Language. And it utilizes the Apple Vision Pro.

Developed over a 2-year period by Guild Hall Community Artists-in-Residence Wunetu Wequai Tarrant and Christian Scheider, the exhibition is open through July 14, 2024. The First Literature Project (FLP) proposes to support Native nations in their efforts to maintain and further their languages, narratives, and oral traditions, making them available to both their tribal communities and surrounding areas. 

By utilizing FLP’s new immersive storytelling platform in Virtual Reality (VR), advanced 3D technology is repurposed to recreate an important tradition— sitting face-to-face with a storyteller, according to Tarrant. The exhibition utilizes Apple Vision Pros to present the story Padawe, originally written in English by Elizabeth “Chee Chee” Thunderbird Haile, now newly translated and narrated in the Shinnecock language by Wunetu, Haile’s granddaughter.
