Virtual reality is usually a solitary affair, but this time you are invited to collectively experience aural and visual immersion in a public space. An actual ball thrown from a great height allows goggle wearers to witness an eruption of colourful drawings. Actions in the real and virtual realms merge, freeing the imagination and intriguing passersby. A Colossal Wave is also linked to the Phi Centre, where participants are invited to explore a different perspective on the connected virtual world.
Presented on the the Parterre from August 30 to October 15 and at the PHI Centre from August 30 to October, 2017, as part of KM3.
