This thesis discusses the design and the implementation of a virtual reality experience based on a sign language poem. Over the last decade, considerable progress has been noted in the development of Human-computer interaction field in both science and art. Significant technological advancement has been also made in virtual reality and motion capture systems as the equipment becomes even more affordable in consumer level. This thesis is based on the context of time-based narrative in virtual reality. A virtual performer avatar narrates a sign language poem in its original form and the virtual environment is constructed and deconstructed according to his/her hand gestures. The user is immersed into that virtual environment where they can feel their presence in the story or embody themselves into the virtual narrator. Motion capture, virtual reality, storytelling and sign language poetry are the key elements contribute all-together to the implementation of this user experience. The description of this pipeline design is the answer to the question of the title.
