This Former Burning Man Creative Built A Unique Online 3D Platform To Help Us Virtually Bond
“Nowhere fosters opportunities for people to experience something unexpected together and creates space for serendipity to happen.” Ana Constantino
“Through Nowhere Constantino and her team hope to create a more intimate life-like connection in an ever-growing online world. One recent Nowhere event was held on a virtual Brooklyn rooftop. Mason Granger, whose poem was performed during the Golden Globes, recited a recent work. Lauren Elder, a Broadway performer and champion whistler sang. With the 3D technology the idea is to replicate the experience of being at a live event as you navigate around in a nonagon-shaped pod.
“There are many different environments to discover,” says Constantino. Guests can watch a show in a black box theater, host a meeting in the clouds or discover secret rooms.
Using live face-to-face interaction every Thursday Nowhere has comedy, music and an open-mic. Participants can listen to performers while networking a room the very same way they would in real life or even even have a private conversation in a stained-glass water tower or moss-covered library. The free event starts at 8:07 pm on Thursdays.
As Constantino explains one person who visited Nowhere said it felt he was attending a party for the first time in over a year. “Doing something you love while having a great experience, in a situation that previously would fall flat when transferred online, is what we're creating,” says Constantino. “Nowhere fosters opportunities for people to experience something unexpected together and creates space for serendipity to happen.”
