Abstract or Description

We present our virtual reality artwork Mutator VR: Vortex that immerses the viewer in procedurally-generated alien environments inhabited by interactive “mutoid” agents. The artwork was adapted into two science pedagogy experiences. Techniques and considerations regarding the dynamical, spatial, and graphical composition of the experiences are provided.
