Wonderspaces Virtual Reality Showcase Pop-Up In Liberty Station

This spring, Wonderspaces is bringing a Virtual Reality experience to Liberty Station.

Wonderspaces Virtual Reality Showcase At San Diego Art Institute

Drawing Room

The experience begins with a film called Drawing Room. This VR film is the first fully hand-drawn VR experience by visual artist Jan Rothuizen.  For this project, Rothuizen teamed up with interactive director Sara Kolster and new media collective Zesbaans.

Together they recreated in clear lines the interior and the view of a room on the roof of a department store in the center of Amsterdam. The department store invited Rothuizen to spend some time on the roof to create a work of art.

Drawing Room playfully deals with the question Virtual Reality creates: can being somewhere, an experience, be a work of art in itself?

Show It To Me

After Drawing Room, go into an interactive VR music video called Show It To Me. Created using Tilt Brush’s audio reactive brushes and featuring Night Club’s single, “Show It 2 Me.” features art created by Titmouse president and owner Chris Prynoski and Titmouse creative director Antonio Canobbio.

Shigeto Hovering

From there, visitors will go into an extraterrestrial VR world that is built from terrestrial objects called  Shigeto Hovering. This experience is an ethereal environment where the simultaneous destruction and creation of a planet’s water source unfold to a uniquely constructed 360-audio spatial mix of Hovering.  Hovering was created from digitally-scanned natural elements and is directed by Conor Grebel.

Richie’s Plank

The experience will end on a plank that is 80 stories high. Knees shaky, palms sweaty. You have a choice – do you walk or do you freeze? Richie’s Plank is the only VR experience that lets you clone any real-world plank into the virtual world for 2X the immersion experience.

The Wonderspaces VR Showcase was created due to the overwhelming enthusiasm for virtual reality films presented in previous Wonderspaces shows. It is a part of the Wonderspaces Spotlight Series, an initiative to collaborate with leading San Diego organizations to present extraordinary art in new formats and to new audiences.

See you there!
