The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, has released a virtual reality video titled “Dreams of Dali” in conjunction with its new exhibit, “Disney & Dali: Architects of the Imagination.” The video gives viewers a 360-degree tour of works by the renowned Spanish artist, beginning with the 1935 painting Archeological Reminiscence of Millet’s “Angelus.”
The Dali-themed VR dreamscape takes the viewer through a barren wasteland with archaic stone structures, freakishly tall elephants and starry skies. Viewers can use the directional controls to see the surrealist environment in 360 degrees on mobile or desktop, or wear an Oculus Rift or Google Cardboard headset with an Android OS to get the complete 3D VR experience. Users on iOS can simply use their device to immerse themselves in Dali’s dream world (YouTube doesn’t support virtual reality on iOS). In short, this feels like you’re traveling through one of Bran Stark’s dreams in Game of Thrones.
The Disney & Dali: Architects of the Imagination exhibit explores Dali’s unlikely friendship and creative partnership with Walt Disney. The works on display for the exhibit include sketches, paintings, archival film, photographs, audio, and correspondence between the famous painter and the entertainment titan.
The exhibit is now open and runs through June 12 at The Dali Museum.[Hypebeast / HuffPo]
