Try an immersive VR experience
Artist collaborators Isobel Knowles and Van Sowerwine are showing their 360-degree stop-motion VR film PASSENGER as part of their new exhibition, Take me with you. The film premiered internationally at the 76th Venice Film Festival and nationally at Melbourne International Film Festival.
Audiences in PASSENGER will, via a single taxi ride, be guided through a new terrain that recreates and investigates the geographic and visual dislocation of arriving somewhere unfamiliar and begin the journey of finding a new home in a foreign land. Also running as part of the exhibition are a Meet the Artist workshop, Miniature Memories (a creative workshop for kids aged 6 plus) and a VR Stop Motion workshop. More details on the website.
(PASSENGER is not recommended for children under 7 years, or for those who suffer from vertigo.)
