Description: Visit the eternal resting place of some of the first animal subjects—the spirit animals—of the “motion picture”. An imaginary historical site, The Muybridge Mausoleum pays homage to humanity’s longstanding preoccupation with moving image experiences. In addition to interpreting a few of our favourite samples from Eadweard Muybridge’s animal studies, the mausoleum playfully blends elements of shadow play, 19th-century magic lantern shows, and early film set design. The result is like a cinema for neanderthals.
Review: I find the collaborations between VR and art to be the most interesting. This app is like a virtual art installation. There is no real point to it, there is nothing to take home from it, it’s just something to sit back, watch and enjoy. This is just one of those apps that you will enjoy or not understand and either is OK. Its 100% free so why not give it a go and let me know what you thought of it in the comments below.
