Motionpoems Presents CHAOS ON THE GREEN LINE

In June of 2017, Motionpoems partnered with Pixel Farm Creative and Egg Music to create a first-of-its-kind 360º VR experience aboard the Twin Cities Green Line train. Using geolocation, riders can use Google Cardboard or any VR viewer to experience a surreal virtual environment that emulates the train’s actual movement and orientation.
