Synthescape is delighted to have teamed up once again with the U’Mista Cultural Society, in Alert Bay, British Columbia, on a new production for the Virtual Museum of Canada. “Living Tradition: The Kwakwaka’wakw Potlatch on the Northwest Coast" is a virtual tour comprised of six panoramic scenes and high-resolution 360º images for each three-dimensional object in the exhibition. This English, French, and Kwak´wala production builds upon our previous documentary work with U’Mista Cultural Society for “Power of Giving," an exhibition held at Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden in 2011.
