Virtual Realms: Videogames Transformed
Immerse yourself into the world of colourful, picture-perfect installations that will transport you through utopia-like landscapes. These installations are developed by six of the world’s most acclaimed videogame developers for the Art and Science Museum exhibitions. These maestros have taken videogames from the screen and translated them into the museum gallery in their own distinct way. The pieces break the traditional forms of art in more ways than one. They blur the lines between different senses with their art, where sounds can be ‘seen’ and visuals can be ‘heard’ or ‘felt’. There are exhibits that are interactive as well, breaking the 4th wall and pulling you inside the stimulation completely.
