Meta Interactive Agency Panorama Festival hi·er·at·ic ga·ze

We teamed up with ILN and Antfood to create Hieratic Gaze, a 360 degree visual experience that debuted at this summer’s Panorama Music Festival.
Hieratic Gaze was an immersive – and communal – cinematic experience, allowing dozens of festival visitors at a time to experience a journey through time and space in a huge 69 foot dome.

Brooklyn Magazine wrote “The cherry on top of the entire installment was The Dome, a 360 degree virtual reality theater where everyone lies down on the floor and looks up at the immersive images together. Lying there was the closest and most connected I have felt to a huge group of strangers in a long time, the most overwhelmed and awed I’ve been since I first saw a movie on IMAX.

Hieratic Gaze was also featured in The New Yorker, The Verge, Live Design Online, and iDigital Times.
