Eugene was my Undergrad Degree Project at the Maryland Institute College of Art.
I designed Eugene as a speculative project that was projected to exist 10 or more years in the future. I wanted to imagine how Artificial Intelligences would exist on our interfaces and off of our interfaces in physical space created by AR and VR. I wanted the Eugene project to explore where we can go in our personal relationships when natural human interactions and thought processes are automated by machines.
