Our March showcase at Future Fires’ luminary at The Midway SF explored the theme:
Nature / Unnature
“How do 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.
Acclaimed Bay Area digital artist and Google Tilt Brush Artist in Residence Steve Teeple painted worlds live using Tilt Brush during the event.

The festival’s installations, and performances are symbolic of a new fire; an expansion of human engagement and community, a new era of artistic practice and imagination.
