Flatsitter is an interdisciplinary collaborative led by Kyle Marler that incorporates video, film, virtual reality, performance and installation. The artistic works explore the periphery of our comprehension of human consciousness, and are exhibited in an array of formats, such as ephemeral web collections, live performances, site-specific installations, short films, and live virtual reality experiences.

Flatsitter is currently touring North America in a mobile virtual reality bus called The Dream Wanderer. This project was produced by Flatsitter.
