Abby Naughton is a fourth-year Gallatin student originally from Richmond, Virginia who is concentrating in the design of themed play spaces, including theme parks and video games. Her studies focus on the relationship between play, storytelling, and environmental design and a space’s role in the conception of a person’s identity. She is also interested in site-specific performance art and immersive theater. In her free time, she enjoys writing poetry and going on ghost hunting adventures of her own.
Abby Naughton’s VR gallery space holds a podcast recording, “Street Ghosts,” a narrative walk that explores some of the ghost stories and personal memories that take place in spaces around Greenwich VIllage. The podcast also includes some original poetry that explores memory.
