A virtual reality David Bowie exhibit right in your pocket

(Mashable) The “David Bowie is” exhibit may have come to an end, but it sounds as though it’s going to live on … through a VR smartphone experience.

The exhibit, which toured cities across the world over the last six years, allowed access to the legendary singer’s personal archives as a means of exploring his creative journey.

On Monday, the official David Bowie site announced that the a virtual reality version of the exhibit will be available later this year.

“The digital experience, a first of its kind, will deliver an astonishing, but deftly connected sequence of audio-visual spaces through which the work and artifacts of Bowie’s life can be experienced,” reads the press release.

“3D scans will preserve and present his fabulous costumes and treasured objects in meticulous detail. The experience may even allow a spectator to virtually step into one of Bowie’s outfits and see themselves in it.”

The exhibit, which is being released by Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) starting fall 2018, will be available in nine different languages.
