Devalaya Rupanam is Sanskrit for Temple of All Kinds of Shapes. It was created by VR art and VFX pioneer, Kevin Mack. The installation was inspired by ancient temples and churches that feature sculptures and paintings of Gods and Saints. It was also inspired by, and designed for, the space it occupies in the MOR. The animated sculptures are based on the Blorts of Anandala, which are artificial lifeforms with emergent behavior and their own language. Geometric construction of the piece was created using processes developed in Houdini. Unity was used for lighting, shaders, and animation. Mack is inspired by transcendent visions, nature, and technology. His work is informed by research in a wide range of fields from neuroscience to artificial life.

MOR 1.0 Release: The Museum of Other Realities Exits Early Access
After many months of development, we're excited to finally launch version 1.0 of the Museum of Other Realities (MOR) on Steam, Viveport, and Oculus Store (Coming Soon). During our time in Early Access, we had the opportunity to hear from the community, which in turn, helped us iterate based on the valuable feedback we've received. We're also glad to have worked with so many amazing artists who have contributed so much to the MOR.
