Art, Fear, and Virtual Reality

It’s scary to put yourself out there. To experience something that changes your view of just about everything. To upend your life in its pursuit. To make something hard, in an unclear world, for an audience that doesn’t really exist.

That’s what VR did to us, and what it has done to millions of people over the past couple years. It’s scary, and it’s something to celebrate.

So tonight we’re teaming up with some of our most creative friends in LA to celebrate art, fear, and virtual reality at the VRScout Haunted Mansion.
