Sofia the VR Explorer by Jesse Link

Seattle fine artist Jesse Link completed a commissioned piece for me to adorn the Pixvana office.  He completed the piece and dropped by our office last week, and my colleagues and I are totally psyched.

My wife and I came across Jesse’s work in various Seattle cafes and first asked him to paint a piece for our home a few years ago.  As a fan of his work, he immediately came to mind when we moved into our new Pixvana office on Stone Way in Fremont/Wallingford, and I looked around at the walls longing for some inspirational art and color to liven things up.

At work we have frequently talked about our journey and Pixvana’s mission/vision as a company focused on building a Virtual and Augmented Reality storytelling technology platform.  We often use the 1933 classic film King Kong as a metaphor/framework for our own journey, because the film is (a) an absolute classic of the cinema, and (b) the movie contains a meta-story about film-making and pursuing a journey of discovery.

We named Jesse’s protagonist “Sofia” after Sofia Coppola, an inspiring film director.  Our Sofia is seen packed and ready to go with her VR Camera, VR headset, and tools for her adventure into the great adventure that lays ahead.

Thank you Jesse–your art piece will be a constant companion to us on our journey in the years ahead.
