It's good to be vocal (ツ) / by VOCAL

While the days might be slowly getting shorter, the list of exciting VOCAL happenings never does. As with every summer, our intentions to visit our homies scattered far and wide have gone largely unrealized, instead reprioritized by jetsetting for client engagement and the making of great projects.

Luckily, if you’ve missed out there are still some good times to be had. And we hope to catch up over a few umbrella drinks before the sun decides to set on the summer.


Unmoored (ending soon)

In partnership with Listen and Microsoft’s ongoing In Culture initiative, VOCAL recently supported the launch of Michael Chin’s Unmoored mixed-reality installation in Times Square. Stroll around the enormous animatronic sculpture and experience a virtual future where global warming raises the sea level to engulf the city. It’s truly terrific and terrifying, and there’s still a little time to check it out.
