Inside 'Lovers' In VR

"Lovers" is an immersive, room-sized multimedia installation by Japanese artist Teiji Furuhashi. Set foot inside the installation, and listen in on a conversation between Furuhashi and MoMA curator, Barbara London, recorded in 1994, just months before the work's inaugural exhibition at MoMA.

 

This is a 360 VR video — a new kind of video that lets you look around in all directions, just like in real life. It is best viewed with a Google Cardboard or Daydream View.

Made just one year before Furuhashi’s death from AIDS-related illness, "Lovers" speaks to what the artist has described as “the theme of contemporary love in an ultra-romantic way.” Presented for the first time since its inaugural exhibition at MoMA in 1995, the installation showcases the results of an extensive conservation effort recently completed by the Museum’s media conservators.
