Fun for kids ages 12 plus, Superheroes: Realities Collide runs from 10am to 5pm daily from now till 22 April 2019. A free event, it's a trip to an alternative comic dimension in room-scale virtual reality at ACMI, corner Flinders and Swanston Streets, Melbourne City. Australia's national museum of film, TV, video games, digital culture and art invites you to create your own unique superhero character, choose powers and abilities, then transform into a hero that will protect the city of Melbourne from a dangerous comic contagion.
You've no doubt been watching your favourite hero jump, fly, web-sling and explode onto your movie or tv screens, but have you ever wondered what it would actually feel like to have those powers and be set free? Answer the call, get those VR headsets, gloves and superpowers to destroy this alternative Melbourne before it swallows our beautiful city in a cloud of anti-matter!
Created in collaboration between Swinburne University, celebrated technology artist Stuart Campbell aka SUTU and award-winning VR studio VISITOR, Superheroes: Realities Collide is part of a living, breathing comic book version of our very own city, inclusive of cars, trams, streets, and buildings that are just waiting to be jumped on.
