Our first multi-person VR exhibit made in collaboration with several artist. Transporting viewers into the world of Pantone and connecting our world, the virtual world, and artist’s vision through a seed.

A challenge we approached was how to create a VR experience that is as easy to view as a painting, a collective viewing experience.
We had to design the VR experience with people, flow, and space in mind. We wanted everyone to enjoy art, not wait in lines.
a seamless transition.
Knowing that getting in and out of the headset is a huge downside to VR, we took the straps off the headsets to create an experience where the viewer can engage with the installation at will. The seed created a grounding element and enticed passerbys to take a look. All these steps lowered the barrier of entry and allowed VR to become approachable in an art setting.
