Bicentennial Campground, Marin, California

IRL Art Camp is a week-long, in person, safe gathering of VR Art Camp’s Artists and Friends in nature, in the Bicentennial Campground near Headlands. It is rooted in the virtual communal efforts of the different cohorts. We aim to facilitate the collective embodiment of these virtually lived experiences with the social aspects of virtual reality.

IRL Art Camp connects and empowers the different cohorts of the social VR residency program which have only met and existed online. We continue our conversations about the possibilities of creating and inhabiting a communal virtual place with care and elevating the shift of our up-scaling digital existence together.

We exchange the impacts of our digitally lived experiences and conclude our year long voluntary work in a collaborative, participatory performance piece that takes place in the Gym of the Headlands Center for the Arts. The performance is an intimate closing ceremony for the VR Art Camp Artists in a digestive container for the online cacophony and avatarism.

All other events (in Bicentennial Campground and Beauty Supply, Oakland) are open for the public! You are welcome to bring a tent, your Friends, hammocks - anything that you would like to offer for this co-creation.

The reverse approach of cultivating an online group in reality helps to deepen and evolve trans-species communication. Day time is a spiritual, slow creation of the collective performance piece about a sense of kinship and connection. In the evenings, we have Campfire Sessions with workshops, participatory performances, artist talks and readings. Through these, we analyze the concept of ‘belonging’ and interconnection.

This IRL camping is the harvest and substantial manifestation of the first year of the VR Art Camp to bond our community. It is also the opportunity to strengthen its foundation and to involve artists more directly in planning for a decentralized self-sustained structure for the future.
