The Infinite is an awe-inspiring and fully immersive experience that will transport you to the depths of space and back inspired by NASA Missions. You’ll get to witness what daily life is like for astronauts, and encounter mind-blowing views of the Earth in the first-ever cinematic spacewalk captured in 3D, 360 virtual reality.
This exclusive voyage coming to Tacoma is a one-of-a-kind event. Only 250 astronauts have experienced life on the International Space Station in the last 20 years, and you’ll get to realistically emulate their epic and emotional adventure. The Infinite is the world’s largest multi-sensory, in–person VR experience and is an extension of the Emmy Award-winning immersive series, Space Explorers: The ISS Experience, the largest production ever filmed in space, in association with TIME studios.
The use of the never-before-seen footage filmed by actual astronauts on the station combined with several mediums (virtual reality, multimedia art, and projections) creates an exceptionally realistic experience. Throughout the 60-minute journey, your every sense will be engaged allowing you to discover life in orbit. And if that’s blowing your mind, you haven’t seen anything yet.
On the collective virtual reality side of things, you’ll get to explore a life-sized 3-D modelized recreation of the International Space Station, rendered to be as true to life as possible. The virtual reality journey will transport you to space and back to Earth, providing a breathtaking view of our blue planet.
While the experience is a true cinematic masterpiece, it also touches our physical realm. At the exhibit, take in exclusive art from world renowned Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda surrounding the themes of space and the interconnectedness of our multidimensional worlds.
The Infinite is truly unlike any other exhibition examining space. After an extremely successful 3-month tour in Montreal, it has taken The US by storm and we are ecstatic to see it coming to the Pacific North-West in May! In Houston, the audience found The Infinite to be a magically ethereal experience that stunned viewers—whether it be physically or emotionally.
Participants were often brought to tears by the immersive nature of the event, specifically when Earth made its glorious appearance through their goggles.
