The purpose of this paper is to present piece of interactive, Virtual Reality art that was created in UBU Lab at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. The work is presented in the context of transmedial design. The main challenge and motivation was to create immersive and affective/aesthetically intensive work with engagement of only simple, minimal resources. “The Stilleben” project was based on real-life artworks (graphics, installations, albums) by the artist Jakub Woynarowski and is example of exploratory design created in interdisciplinary, cultural computing laboratory just established at the Jagiellonian University.
