Storyscapes is a collaboration between BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Gin and Tribeca Film Festival that brings together five distinctive transmedia projects by artists and digital media innovators from around the world. This year, the stories are all around us, brought to life by innovative storytelling techniques that engage us on the new and different sensory levels. The projects in Storyscapes incorporate virtual reality, live performance, 3D graphics, music and gesture-based gaming to encourage participation and sparks the imagination. In this second incarnation of Storyscapes, the ability to interact with the projects is even more profound, displaying just how powerful storytelling can be when told across different interfaces.

The House of Imagination app will help you navigate the space: find exhibits, view the Imagination Series films, and discover what SAPPHIRE® cocktails you can enjoy at one of our bars. The app uses iBeacon technology that knows where you are in the space to give you specific, relevant info—like details about an exhibit you’re approaching or a featured cocktail of the bar that’s just steps away. You can also use the app to plan your visit to the House of Imagination in advance. Think of it as your sophisticated, in-the-know friend who always knows where to go next.
