Will virtual and augmented reality move us into the knowledge age?

Artist, Zenka, takes us on a journey through time. Her street art and sculptures paint a picture of where we are in time and where we are headed based on new developments in virtual and augmented reality. Finding new ways to visualize accelerating change begs the question: how do we dream big and prepare for fast change in the knowledge age?

We will also have an interactive VR experience on demo called “The Night Cafe” – a virtual reality tribute to Van Gogh.  We will also have 360 videos to try out, including the “Circle of Life” – a 360 video of the Lion King being performed on Broadway.
