Tom of Finland (1920 – 1991) is arguably one of the world’s most celebrated and influential creators of queer-erotic art. TOM House the VR Experience (2023) is a documentary virtual reality piece that immerses visitors into the legendary Los Angeles residence of Tom, where he lived over the last decade of his life. The VR-piece features three thematic tours around the house guided by Mr. Durk Dehner, the co-founder and president of Tom of Finland Foundation, and a virtual art gallery, which presents Tom’s work like never experienced before.
