SPIRIT + CONSCIOUSNESS + DREAMS + TECHNOLOGY + THE OPEN ROAD

The Dream Wanderer was once a forgotten Ford Econoline transit shuttle. Resurrected, it now tours cities from Miami to Mexico City as a roving artist space showcasing virtual reality artworks by Buffalo-based art collective Flatsitter.

Along the way, we’ve delivered almost 25,000 live VR experiences for: art fair denizens in Miami and Mexico City; drunkspunks, and monks in New Orleans; surfers in Oaxaca, movie stars in Los Angeles; technophiles at Moogfest; dirt ravers at Burning Man; poutine lovers in Ontario & Quebec; and good/tortured souls across the Bible Belt.

Check out the amazing glitch design on the bus by Phillip Stearns and follow us on Twitter to keep track of the journey.

the featured experience:

The original virtual reality work being exhibited is titled Lily Dale and is a VR exploration of spiritualism, vivid dreaming, and the afterlife, and is based on the beliefs of a small utopian community in Western New York. The Austin Chronicle described it as “a virtual reality experience that’s on the weirder side of sublime, that’s eerie and personal and arranged like a beautiful immersive installation.” This experience features a custom-drawn tarot deck by Bobby Griffiths, motion capture from Ginger Wagg, and 20 different VR vignettes for multiple viewings.
