Laurie Anderson & Hsin-Chien Huang

Chalkroom

Step inside an immersive world and take a journey through an enormous structure made of words, drawings and stories.

Once you enter this interactive installation you are free to roam and fly. Words sail through the air as emails. They fall into dust. They form and reform. Created by pioneering artist and musician Laurie Anderson and Taiwanese new media artist Hsin-Chien Huang, Chalkroom is a Virtual Reality work unlike any other. Instead of the brightly-lit gaming world of most VR, everything is hand drawn, dusty and dark, creating a shadowy, atmospheric world to explore. Opening Saturday 8 February, 6.30pm–8.30pm.
