Chicago 00: Century of Progress is a virtual and augmented reality experience of the 1933 World’s Fair. The Fair offered visitors a sleek and optimistic vision of a modern future, driven by the accomplishments of architecture, science, and design. Historical images from the Chicago History Museum’s photography and film archives are combined with contemporary 360 degree site photography to immerse audiences in an experience of a specific place and time in the past. Chicago 00: Century of Progress uses app-based virtual reality to provide a view into the fleeting and sensational city within a city that attracted nearly 50 million visitors to the shores of Lake Michigan in the midst of the Great Depression. The Chicago 00 Project is an ongoing venture to create new media experiences with the Chicago History Museum’s extensive archive of historical imagery and to tell Chicago stories in the places they happened.
