Description: „Cosmic Voyage“ is based on three of OUBEYs paintings which date from 1986/87. The first painting in the Experience is untitled, the second painting is called Nullfeld (Field Zero) and the final Experience painting was given the title Einsteins Tränen (Einstein’s Tears) some years after its creation.
This VR takes you on a cosmic journey through the universe of OUBEYs paintings. Starting on Earth you are led into the far distant depths of space and back to the primeval beginnings of the universe. As you travel you’ll see how the globe of the Earth becomes ever more distant and smaller and smaller until it completely vanishes from your line of sight.
Review: I have to say the ‘OUBEY VR’ series of art experiences is going backwards in progression rather than forward! This one titled ‘OUBEY VR – Cosmic Voyage’ is not interactive at all! At least the other ones let you kind of make your own work of art, this one just lets you view a planet from various points but not change it in any way. While it is still oddly interesting for a freebie it is hardly worth the download, especially when compared to the original ‘OUBEY VR – Samurai‘. I don’t know, I just expect each VR experience from a company to get better and better as their skills progress, but that is not always the case.
