Productions

We are a collective of interdisciplinary artists dedicated to creating immersive experiences that tap into universal human emotions. We explore the spaces between art, technology, interconnectivity and the self, creating journeys with a genuine emotional impact to inspire individual growth and creativity.

We believe in the importance of art to the human experience, and in the importance of supporting an artist’s work.

about Screenshot

We are a newly formed, immersive-installation collective with a long-term vision to establish a sustainable immersive culture in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

We have been inspired by the collaborative, immersive scene in New York and hope to bring something similar to the West Coast. However, we don't simply wish to replicate existing models for what constitutes an immersive production, but instead forge ahead with our own take on where we think the medium can go. Our vision is to continually push what an immersive experience can be and what audience members can get out of it. Our hope is that each art installation taps into universal human emotions in some meaningful way and that the art has a genuine emotional impact on those who attend.
