Announcing Starbird Reality Shop

 

metropolisStarbird Reality is excited to offer immersive art via our new e-commerce portal.

Here you’ll find explorable virtual environments, immersive audio-only experiences, installations, even experiments to combine digital content with physical elements.

We champion immersive artists whose work falls into that nebulous “other” category.

As a feminist, multicultural, and queer-friendly organization, we are especially interested in working with artists who identify as such.

We have few guidelines for the kinds of artworks we accept, but here’s a big one: no shooters. We’ve enjoyed our fair share of shoot-em-up games, still play them on occasion, and adore our friends who create them, but decided to let others make money on games that involve gun violence.

Our first wave of VR offerings include works by Scobot and Evie Powell, two Seattle-based artists exploring the edges of visual art and music in virtual worlds. If you’d like to join these pioneers and make your work available on Starbird Reality Shop, please see our submission guidelines. We’d love the chance to experience your work.

We want Starbird Reality to be the place for you to discover the world’s most ground-breaking immersive experiences. Thank you for joining us on this adventure!
