The Desert X 2019 guide to Margin of Error, the VR installation at the Salton Sea

Desert X 2019 runs from Palm Springs to the Salton Sea (with many spots in the Coachella Valley in between) from February 9 through April 21. Check out the info below for Nancy Baker Cahill’s Margin of Error in Palm Springs and then read our complete guide to Desert X and every one of the installations here.

What: Margin of Error

Artist: Nancy Baker Cahill

Special Note: Make sure you have the app before you head out to this one!  Details on that below.

Where: North Shore Yacht Club, Salton Sea (look for the sign)

Lowdown: So, before I get to anything else here, I will warn you: YOU MUST DOWNLOAD A LARGE APP BEFORE YOU GET HERE. Seriously. Do it. Do it now. It is big (150 mb) and some carriers only allow you to download it on WiFi and this Desert X installation is not near WiFi and, well, you can’t see the thing if you don’t have the app. So get the 4th Wall app now.  This also goes for Cahill’s other VR Desert X installation in Palm Springs.

Download it for: Android / iPhone

Note: if you are looking to avoid Desert X “spoilers” stop reading here.  If not, carry on.

This installation can be found on the beach at the Salton Sea State Park Recreation Center.  Just park in the lot, walk toward the beach and look for the sign.

Once you see it, whip out that phone and open up the app that you were smart enough to download before you left home and, voila!, the magic begins.

It really is pretty rad.  Walk around with the app open and watch how the VR moves with you.  Then look around and see how those who have no idea what you are doing look utterly confused.

For those who forget the app or who would like a little preview, here you go:

Be sure to screengrab your favorite moments – which you can do within the app – to share on the ‘Gram.
