Is VR revolutionary or is it hype? As with any form of emerging technology, high expectations tend to detract from the experience itself. Let’s put aside “the future is now” argument and focus on the content that actually shows the bold spirit of innovation among independent artists that haven’t had a chance to share their work. This mini showcase is an exclusive selection of unique under the radar VR experiences. Dive into a day of narrative worlds, social media cultures, immersive designs, game theory, and transmedia activism curated by Zeynep Abes.

Selected Games:

Dear Angelica
Land Grab
A Short History of the Gaze
NeuroSpeculative Afrofeminism
Notes on Blindness
Zero Days
Museum of Symmetry
Melody of Dust
