Enter the Oligocene

Enter the Oligocene is an educational VR experience created by the Savannah College of Art and Design in partnership with the Charleston Museum. I currently work on the project as a 3D character modeler, creating scientifically-accurate models of prehistoric dolphins and other extinct sea creatures. Since the project is ongoing, there are many more models in the works that will be posted soon.

Enter the Oligocene was conceived based on newly published research about early whales by Robert W. Boessenecker, Morgan Churchill, Emily A. Buchholtz, Brian L. Beatty, and Jonathan H. Geisler. The paper is available publicly here: https://www.cell.com/current-biology/fulltext/S0960-9822(20)30828-9?fbclid=IwAR1gSZSMHQje29od2QWjA_Cz2KmxV3OED4nPz7aR-tpIxVR8cJ30XxVPyek
