    Dystopian Daydreams Exhibit 

    Welcome to Café Sophistry’s first public exhibit, “Dystopian Daydreams.”

    The mind always tells itself stories, even in the darkest situations. VR audiences flock to dystopian worlds. Is occupying apocalyptic aftermaths an act of coping, or cleansing and innocence? Do creators enjoy “exploiting decay” for its dynamic beauty?

    Please join the Café Sophistry creators as we play with the Dystopian Daydream. Through April 2, 2017.

          SOLD IT! 😛

          I’m hanging out in Room 6C at the Truk Stop Hotel in Truk Lagoon, Federated States of Micronesia.

          Might relocate for MU CAA-VUP to shorten the commute… we’ll see how that goes.

    Dystopian Daydreams 2 

    Ferris Wheel at OUTBREAK


    The abridged transcript for our first Café Sophistry Dystopian Daydreams session is now available. Thanks to all participants – it was a great conversation and journey through Outbreak and Once Upon a Fairy Tale.

    Please note, our next meeting is Sunday, March 12 at 9am SLT. Please bring a new creation along the lines of our discussion topic, which was essentially “regeneration from destruction.” We were philosophical and all mediums are good, but we also discussed creating a simple “dystopian” piece such as a texture, furniture, or other item simply as a stylistic challenge (if you’ve not tried that). Thanks again.
