CIRCLE

“Circle” is a VR art experience that invites participants on a relaxing journey through sound and space.

After entering an abstract and unknown environment, you’ll see three different portals emerge from the fog. Each portal possesses a unique musical element. As you make a selection, the portal slowly surrounds you with its shape and sound before taking you into a new space with three more portals. You then continue the journey from one environment to the next while creating your own unique musical tapestry.

"It's like i'm inside of a song."

Created by the Boston startup Trio, the team of game developers - Jonathan Pardo, Steve Pardo and Jeff Hesser - was inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s philosophical essay “Circles.” In this essay, Emerson writes that, while we each live in a unique and personal circle, we are capable of expanding our radius if we are only willing to try.

With seemingly endless choices and splintering destinations, users and viewers alike can appreciate the surprising turns different journeys can offer.

Participants have called the experience "calming" and "almost spiritual" and many people have said, "I could do that all day.”
