The Bedroom

In the first level of ANTIdiaRy, we visit a white, airy bedroom. It’s a little spooky and eerie, and as we move around the room we encounter a handful of “clues.” In one, childish drawings of airplanes flying to Africa, America and Barbados decorate the walls. “Robyn Rihanna Fenty” is scrawled on another wall. Under the bed rests a paper airplane made of sheet music. Another clue leads you to the “keyholder” Instagram account, where even more cryptic clues are waiting for more enterprising, adventurous fans looking to find the physical key. Some say it migh point to more clues on location while the other discuss if it’s a tour tease.

Also under the bed is a book with a note written to Robyn (Rihanna’s real name), telling her, “There’s gold in your voice. Follow it.” Two children are playing the piano in another clue video, and a little girl with a crown over her eyes enters the room. What does it all mean?!

This room symbolizes the beginnings of Rihanna’s career, the roots of her fame. There’s sand on the floor like the sand of Barbados. There’s no roof in the room, only sky, which meant that for child Rihanna, the sky was the limit for her dreams. R1 = The Music Of The Sun.

Did you notice that…?

  • Rihanna leaves the room and grabs R8 key
  • The room turns BLUE

Adult Rihanna appears in the bedroom scene, peering at the children from underneath the blanket and walking through the room in a light blue dress. The color blue features heavily in this segment; what does it mean to Rih? The little girl in the crown is illuminated in blue, and so is Rihanna. Her hair and lipstick are a deep, indigo blue. From the first room of the experience, we know that Rihanna is drawing from the innocence of childhood.
