THETA: A Virtual Reality Experience – Coming Soon to Your Brain

If you were one of the lucky ones to interact with Flatsitter, a virtual digital media and performance installation that has made the rounds to numerous events and festivals, then you will be happy to hear that the collaborative just nabbed the first ever virtual reality grant from New York State Council on the Arts. The grant will allow the team to move forward with THETA: a Virtual Reality Experience.

This is exciting news for fans of virtual reality experimentations and productions. THETA: a Virtual Reality Experience, is described as “an avant-garde guided meditation virtual reality spa experience founded on principles of synesthesia and sensorial decadence.” THETA collaborators include Frank Napolski, John and Carlie Rickus, Volker Einsfeld, and Noah Falck, who will be working towards bringing the project to life by early 2016.

THETA is the next step after Flatsitter’s initial foray into the world of public virtual reality performance art – an installation called SAFE WOR(L)D.

The grant application was sponsored by Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Art Center.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
