Enjoy four VR installations available free as part of the Immersive Arcade showcase.
The Museum of Other Realities—a VR multiplayer art platform for PC VR headsets—will be opening its doors to the public 100% free-of-charge as part of a limited-time partnership with Kaleidoscope and Digital Catapult aimed at bringing British VR experiences and immersive films to the next-generation art gallery.
Open now until March 26th via MOR, The Immersive Arcade: The Showcase is a multi-part exhibition composed of British immersive productions hand-picked by a panel of respected immersive producers, researchers, and executives. Volume One: Realities & Dimensions features four projects in total:
Common Ground by Darren Emerson, East City Films.
“Common Ground is a VR documentary narrative exploring the history, politics and human face of the current crisis in the UK housing system. Through the brutalist concrete blocks of the notorious Aylesbury Estate, the biggest social housing estate in Europe, audiences will enter its world from its construction to its controversial redevelopment today. This multifaceted VR documentary questions notions of community, examines the dis-enfranchisement and demonisation of the working class, and captures the sense of betrayal that residents feel when they are forced to move on.”
The Invisible by Darkfield.
“Imagine you could make yourself invisible. What would you do with this remarkable talent? Could you resist the temptation to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting? If you cannot be seen, how can you be held responsible for anything? Meet the invisible man and choose your path.”
Fly by Charlotte Mikkelborg, Novelab.
“From a multiple award-winning VR team and Oscar-winning special effects team, Fly enables you to become a time-travelling pilot – from the earliest imaginings of Leonardo da Vinci and his ornithopter, to the Wright Brothers’ success on Kitty Hawk Beach and, ultimately, into one potential future of flight.”
Notes on Blindness by ARTE, Atlas V, Archer’s Mark, Novelab.
“An immersive virtual reality (VR) project based on John Hull’s sensory and psychological experience of blindness released alongside the feature film.”
The Immersive Arcade: The Showcase is open now until March 25th via the Museum of Other Realities.
