You can be forgiven if it is really slipped your brain, but Area15—the big, Palace Station-adjacent charcoal-coloured secret box that will host the Santa Fe, New Mexico-centered interactive artwork collective Meow Wolf, among the other 1-of-a-type leisure and retail destinations—is even now out there, and, as much as I know, even now scheduled to open this 12 months. (Enable us hope.) But the Area15 crew is just not waiting around until finally opening day to acquire about our hearts and minds. Today, they’ve posted the very first in what they say will be an overall series of “guided meditation video clips to stimulate leisure and amusement throughout quarantine.”

They are, um, not very what you be expecting. Just before you get your chakras all in a bunch, know that these are truly some sublimely goofball meditations, narrated by velvety-voiced Atlas Haverford (truly Area15 main artistic officer Michael Beneville) and visualized by UNLV’s Marlon Bulaong, winner of Area15’s digital content material creation contest. The very first episode of Sleep15, posted to Fb, is considerably less a meditation than a humorous exercise in existential terror (let’s just say the cosmos is a huge position, with very poor transit choices and minimal cell service), though the Instagram-hosted second episode attributes Elvis singing a social distancing-knowledgeable model of “Are You Lonesome Tonight?”

Will Sleep15 support you to transcend this airplane of existence? Very well, perhaps kinda. Will it give you a effectively-deserved laugh? Very likely. And at the minimum, it will renew your anticipation of Area15—opening, like every little thing else, the moment we’re presented the higher indication to emerge from the caves.
