Our March showcase at Future Fires’ luminary at The Midway SF explored the theme:

Nature / Unnature

“How to epiphanies and cathartic experiences manifest in our “natural” minds, spurred by the “unnatural” creations of VR artists?”

We engaged with this question through three VR experiences: Dreams of Dali from The Dali Museum, Morphogenesis by Can Buyukberber & Yagmur Uyanik, and Fistful of Stars by Eliza McNitt & The Endless Collective.
