Spatial Reality: Artists Explore the Future of XR
Starts Oct 12
End Oct 28
49 East Walnut Street
Pasadena, CA 91103

"XR—a spectrum of ‘extended’ reality that includes virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR)—three-dimensionalizes the virtual world. After a half-century of computing in 2D, we are suddenly adding in the full expression of our bodies and our understanding of space. We turn to the artists and storytellers: the visionaries who leapt over a precipice and into new worlds without any idea where they might land to create work for this show. And it deserves note that this leap takes a tremendous amount of courage. The work in this exhibition is unlike anything you’ve encountered, and it’s a sneak peek of the reality you’ll soon inhabit on a daily basis.

Accompanied by her black cat, Jiji, Kiki flies to the port city of Koriko where she meets Tombo, a boy obsessed with flying (another constant Miyazaki theme). Kiki opens up a delivery service to deliver goods via her flying broom (a kind of Witch Fedex), makes all sorts of mistakes, but slowly and surely gains confidence in her witch abilities."
