As virtual and augmented reality technology become more accessible to artists and creators, we are treated to increasingly innovative applications of that technology. Naked Inc., a Japanese firm that consistently creates detailed, intricate, interactive experiences is once again leading the way when it comes to building immersive experiences.
The brainchild of Naked director Ryotaro Muramatsu, "Tree" is a six course meal that invites guests to follow the story of a tree as it grows. Each life stage of the tree is paired with a course as the diners move through a three story building that has been fully equipped with VR technology, projection mapping, and other artistic features.
It's exciting to see artists begin to weave this technology into their work and this is just the beginning. There are innovations and art pieces around the corner that we can't even imagine yet; we can't wait to see what's next!
