For one day only in Los Angeles, a series of futuristic art installations and panels will bring together some of the brightest minds in art, entertainment, and technology. The Engadget Experience will be an opportunity to experience one-of-a-kind art exhibits and hear from the artists behind these projects. The Engadget Experience will take place at LA’s Ace Hotel on November 14th, and you can win tickets to be there.
To make The Engadget Experience happen, Engadget gave out the largest prizes ever in the field of immersive tech—$100,000 apiece to teams creating art from VR, artificial intelligence and even search results.
The artistic projects that will be part of the experience include:
— Dance with flARmingos, a mixed reality experience that features a interspecies dance between humans and flamingos. For artist Kristin Lucas, it’s an opportunity to depart from a human-centered worldview.
— Dinner Party, a virtual-reality thriller based on the true story of the Betty and Barney Hill UFO-abduction incident, the first nationally known UFO abduction in American history.
— Mapper’s Delight, a cultural tale representing worlds, experiences and gameplay told through hip-hop.
— Untrained Eyes, a conceptual technology project that takes its inspiration from observing the explicit bias that can be found during everyday image searches within Google and other public-image archives.
— Your Hands Are Feet, an interactive room-scale VR experience that places you in surreal realities made up of experiential metaphors.
Tickets for the Engadget Experience are on sale now at a temporarily reduced price, but one lucky reader can win two free tickets, plus a two-night stay at the Ace Hotel, a $1,000 airfare stipend and a collection of gadgets that includes the Amazon Echo, Samsung Galaxy S8, Samsung Gear VR and a Smarthome automation bundle.
The Engadget Experience will take place at LA’s Ace Hotel on November 14th. Enter here to win tickets.
