VR_I New York Premiere!
Brooklyn Academy of Music’s (BAM) popular, interactive digital arts showcase TeknopolisTM returns for its third year with an ambitious new program designed to inspire creativity, connect with the future, and embolden a renewed sense of play for all ages. This year’s highlights offer the latest in technology- fueled art and participatory environments, featuring work by leading artists and technologists, including Zach Lieberman, Molmol Kuo, Gilles Jobin, Cabbibo, and Daily tous les jours.
New this year, the TeknopolisTM + VR experience allows visitors full access to the digital arts showcase throughout the entire BAM facility in two-hour timed-entry sessions.
The Hillman Studio will house interactive VR experiences, including VR_I, the first ever immersive contemporary dance piece, choreographed by Gilles Jobin, that enables users to inhabit full-body avatars that interact and communicate physically with each other in various performance landscapes, and Cabbibo’s L U N E, an experimental haiku dedicated to the exploration of VR where users can dance, play, meditate, or build a pillow fort made from stars.
VR_I : February 23 – March 10 @ Brooklyn Academy of Music’s (BAM)
Location: BAM Fisher, 321 Ashland Pl, Brooklyn, NY
