MAMMOTH VR is a collective of futurists and explorers that use Virtual Reality to navigate through time and space. Virtual Reality unlocks our limitations and gives us the ability to do anything, be anywhere and at any time, past, present or future.

What will you show us at The Dream Factory?
We are showing a curated Virtual Experience that inspired us in the early days of the Virtual Reality resurgence back in 2014. You will be sent through a spiritual journey through a dark world full of lost souls in search of your redemption!
If you had a dream for the Calgary Arts scene, what would it be?
Our dream is to have a scene of bohemian technological explorers that think of everything they do as art! Art and technology combined can help us go to worlds we never thought possible.
Do you have a recurring dream?
Matt: Might be cliché but since I was very young I have always had the dream that I could jump really high and for long distances. I could never fly but it is almost like I have the ability to carry no mass for a limited period of time.
Von: I have had a dream starting back when I was 19 and it really never felt like a dream as it felt like a lost memory from another life. I wake up in a dark room and find myself walking down an empty hall which seems endless but then suddenly I am teleported to outside a military base. From there, I see armed guards and then enter escape mode and run into a wooded area. As I run through the woods, the sound of a giant mecha (giant robot) sweeps though the forest. The sound of the mecha attacking the base and screams echo as I continue to run.
Jason: I wake up as usual, and hop on the computer and realise that I have Ransomware installed on my computer. The ransomware is always branded by fruit such as orange. Then usually the ransomware note is very polite and direct and says something like “All your files have been encrypted. Please pay 1 bitcoin to the following address: <string of random characters>. Panic sets in and then I wake.
What did you last dream about?
Matt: I was wading through a river and it started to glow. A cacophony of sound hits my body and starts to vibrate through me. The vibration feels like it is pulsating as if bass were hitting my body and travelling through it. I am pushed to the bottom of the river but am able to breath normally. The vibrations build up to its peak and just before I feel like the biggest vibration is about to pass through my body, I wake.
Von: I can’t recall any recent dreams.
Jason: I went to the Music and Gaming Conference in Washington, DC. I forgot to get my pass and then security became furious when I tried to get in. Then I left the conference hall and noticed a large party bus like the size of a cruise ship and saw people in a ring around it clapping and then I woke up.
Name 5 things or people you are inspired by.
Matt: Chris Milk, Elon Musk, Google, The Future, Black Mirror
