Extra Content: Altered State event review

As the Internet of things advances, the very notion of a clear dividing line between reality and virtual reality becomes blurred, sometimes in creative ways. Geoff Mulgan

Good morning! I had a hiatus last week, so here is some extra content before the week’s review. It’s a review of a virtual event I attended a few weeks ago. I’m not into video games too much, so it was a bit surreal.

I’m one of those people who isn’t completely sold on the Metaverse, I’ll admit it. But I went to Altered State with an open mind.

The first area I checked out was the Charged Particles room in Decentraland. The navigation was easy enough, and there was live music streaming the whole time.

I transitioned to Cryptovoxels and enjoyed exploring the entirety of the building.

There was a lot of amazing art like this:

There was also live music streaming the whole time, and people were being asked by the emcee to support the artists.

My overall impression is that this kind of event is pretty fun. It was fairly early in the morning for me, but for the others it appeared to be night time. Either way, I enjoyed perusing the gallery and can understand what’s interesting about this format. I do hope in the future that we can get some hybrid events which have virtual galleries and in-person displays of the art as well. Altered State will be running every 3 weeks or so, and I’d recommend dropping in. I know I will be!
