Be transported to a new dimension at ArtScience Museum’s latest exhibition, Virtual Realms: Videogames Transformed.
Making its international debut in Singapore on 12 June 2021, the exhibition pairs six of the world's most acclaimed videogame developers with six leading media design studios to create a series of large-scale, immersive installations.
The immersive exhibition introduces visitors to new ways of approaching and enjoying videogames through six key themes – SYNESTHESIA, UNITY, CONNECTION, PLAY, NARRATIVE and EVERYTHING.
Let's step into the realm of the videogame in a series of playful and immersive installations that will take you on a journey through new sonic landscapes and exciting kaleidoscopic worlds now.
Together: the distance between (us), 2021
By thatgamecompany (game developer) and FIELD.IO (media designer)
In the UNITY realm, the dreamlike world of thatgamecompany’s Sky: Children of the Light (2019) has been transformed into an immersive spatial environment. As visitors move beneath the circular light-sculpture, music and audio fragments from the game, Sky, are triggered and a choreography of light sequences unfolds.
Together: the distance between (us) invites everyone to become a player in the all- encompassing generative instrument. Explore the relationship between movement, light and sound as visitors use their presence to influence the composition of the space.
By collaborating with others, visitors will witness the build-up of fragments of light and melody which will culminate in a collective crescendo and a moment of unity for all to experience.
