The OASIS Immersion Experience Just Opened In Montreal & It's Trippy AF (VIDEO)

Escape this hellish reality with 105 laser projectors and 119 surround sound speakers.

The first edition of Montreal's OASIS Immersion experience opened at Palais des congrès on February 25 — and it's the perfect weekend escape from Quebec's current COVID-19 reality.

The premiere exhibition is called Inspirations, a look through the lens of Quebec's creative talent. It uses 105 laser projectors and 119 surround sound speakers "to both enthrall and invigorate you," says the website

In the third and largest room — "The Panorama" — you'll plunge into the stories of people, ideas and places.

The immersive spaces can often feel like they transport you from one psychedelic dimension to the next, but their contents never lack substance and always seek to educate.

You'll find yourself moved by moments that shook the world this year — including Black Lives Matter protests — and conversations with pianist Alexandra Stréliski, as well as astronaut David Saint-Jacques.
