KAWS Brings VR to the New York Pubic Library
on 30 January 2017
Brian Donnelly aka KAWS unveiled his first-ever VR project at the New York Public Library this past weekend. Housed in the historic Gottesman Gallery, the work was produced by Visionaire—in fact, co-directed by co-founder Cecilia Dean. In essence a trippy, magical and immersive "studio visit" with KAWS' characters aplenty, the 360-degree project kept the artist's signature aesthetic intact while blending reality with the virtual. Hopefully we can expect more from KAWS in this medium.
