Presence Picture #12: ‘Virtual Bowie Coupe’ on train to exhibit in Grongen, Netherlands

Virtual Bowie Coupe

“Train passengers take a virtual reality journey through the life of the British pop star David Bowie, which is exhibited in a ‘Virtual Bowie Coupe’ in the train from Zwolle to Groningen/Netherlands/.” The Getty Image is from The Telegraph on this sad day, 9 January 2016. After the virtual journey in the train compartment, the passengers can visit a new exhibition about David Bowie in the Groninger Museum, curated by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; details from the museum are here.

RTV Oost [translated via Google] has more details, three other images, and a 1:32 minute video and 4:15 radio report (in Dutch).

The image below and a 1:53 minute video with excerpts of the virtual reality content can be found on the deStentor website.
