Stratus: An experience Combining Installation Art & Virtual Reality
November 27-9:00 am - 9:00 pm
Sunday 27 November 2022
‘Imagine you wake up in an unknown universe. You don’t know where you are, you are just immersed in the deepest of blues in a vast, infinite space. You are floating, without gravitational pull, light as a feather and free. You have no physical body but can control where you go, where you look and what you listen to. As you begin to take a closer look around you, you see various objects and alien beings in this space, a whole world at your fingertips. You decide to take a closer look and as you start to explore, you hear music, a symphony of emotions, accompanying you in a journey that questions your own perceptive limits.
We want to invite you to an installation created in The Crypt Gallery, Euston, the start of this story. Here you will be free to roam around the listed building until you discover VR headsets, gateways to our digital universe. Using these you are then free to explore a world situated in a science fiction story about a space mission gone wrong. As you journey through two different environments, your own identity is questioned. Where do you end and something else begin and what are the limits to your own existence?
Join us to witness the birth of a new world.
