Rocky On The Rocks

After building out my virtual reality art gallery in Voxels, I had begun putting together exhibitions that I felt were obscure enough to generate an audience. Having grown up in the era of Sylvester Stallone, I wondered what it would look like if an entire exhibition was dedicated to his larger-than-life characters. Each photo generated by Dream by WOMBO was more bizarre than the previous one, and before long, I had well over 130 photos ready to be uploaded into Voxels. I sat on my laptop, laughing to myself at the obscene aesthetic of this Sly-based exhibition, and wondered if I should post a few online and tag Stallone himself. Although these moments were great for a good laugh, I really did believe I could reach Stallone if I wanted to, and that’s what made everything even more entertaining. I always believed I could do what I say I want to do, and more often than not, I’d stop at nothing to accomplish them. But as I finished up the gallery, I used my Oculus Quest 2 to enter Voxels in full virtual reality and was absolutely amazed by my creation. As I strapped on the headset, the world around me dissolved into darkness, only to be replaced by the immersive and surreal surroundings of my virtual gallery. The crisp detail and vivid colors of each Stallone-inspired artwork instantly pulled me in, as I marveled at the innovative use of technology that allowed me to bring this idea to life. I began browsing each floor of the building, starting with the ground floor. As I walked through the gallery, I couldn’t help but grin at the wildly imaginative portraits of Stallone’s iconic characters, each one more outrageous than the last. Each floor took you through a journey, with images of the boxing legend in various whimsical and thought-provoking scenarios, some of which were clearly inspired by the films themselves, while others were a more personal interpretation. These artworks not only captured the essence of the character but also pushed the boundaries of creativity, as I saw Rambo depicted in various styles and settings that ranged from the gritty to the fantastical. The attention to detail and the creativity in each piece were mesmerizing, as I found myself lost in the art, feeling an intimate connection to the man behind these legendary characters. As I reached the top floor, the gallery transformed into a retrospective of Stallone’s career, showcasing the evolution of his acting and the impact he has had on popular culture.
