To see these projects come to life was amazing,” he said. “It really showed me I can create anything I want in AR or VR—it’s not just for professionals or those who have years of experience.” -David Obajemu (University of Maryland, Immersive Media Design Major)

"Thank you for creating a safe and inspiring environment for us to create and perform. That in itself is something that I appreciate very much, because at times it can be hard to let loose and participate or even feel comfortable. I thought the way we were able to connect as an ensemble so quickly and together was astonishing."  -Sebastian Ruiz (Smoke & Mirrors Co-Lab participant)
