Step inside the mind of one of the coolest teenagers ever with Ferris’s Room.
Title: Ferris’s Room
Director: Ryan Mains
Format: Interactive VR, Installation
Running Time: 15-20m
Like most teenagers, Ferris Bueller’s bedroom is much more than just a place to sleep. A sanctuary, laboratory, recording studio, office, and shrine to the bands he loves, Ferris’s bedroom is an extension of his larger-than-life personality, a place to explore his interests, and of course, to cook up schemes.
Recreated by Canadian artist Sarah Keenlyside as part of the 30th anniversary celebrations of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in Chicago in 2016, every inch of Ferris’s Room was photographed to create a 3D model, allowing you to visit and interact with the room in virtual reality.
Toss around Ferris’s baseball (Go Cubs!) or play his synthesizer. Sarah will share details on how she found or made Ferris’s prized possessions as you explore the room.
