Stepping into Durk van der Meer's (@durkatwork) Terrarium feels like inviting yourself into someone’s home without ringing the doorbell. Something about it is comforting enough to make you wait for a host, as you take in the stillness of an indoor environment and the warmth of a stylized home theater. Created with Google Blocks and Substance Painter, Terrarium touches on Durk's love for dioramas and his background in architectural visualization - both of which have been poignantly realized in the piece.
With a slow and meditative immersive intention, WORLD ONE by VR artist Scobot (@scobot1) is a vast, abstract paintscape created in Tilt Brush. Surrounded by streaks of light and leafy canopies and caves, float through the piece as it makes you shift gears in terms of your relational immersion to paintings.
An illustrious nod to the fidget spinner trend from 2017, Infinite Fidget is John Orion Young's (@joy._.world) newest addition to the MOR. Young describes the piece as a “muse for infinite creative energy”, a creativity booster when you're feeling low. What you could decide beforehand, perhaps, is whether you’ll spin with joy or let yourself be spun.
