Visit the Smithsonian’s #BurningMan Exhibition in VR | #VirtualReality @intel @sansarofficial
Earlier this year the Smithsonian launched a Burning Man exhibition – that show is on view through January 2019. If you can’t get to DC to see No Spectators you can always virtually visit the Renwick gallery via virtual reality, thanks to a partnership between Intel and Sansar (an account with Sansar and their downloadable .exe is required for the “experience”).
Imagine the possibilities with virtual reality at your fingertips. For the Smithsonian American Art Museum, VR frees their collection from the constraints of time and space, making it infinitely accessible. By partnering with Intel and a team of VR specialists, they’re on their way to reaching their goal of a billion visitors with a museum experience that can transport people from anywhere in the world.
