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.
By David OReilly (game developer) and onedotzero (media designer)
The EVERYTHING realm celebrates the capacity of videogames to generate expansive universes and give shape to the infinite potential of our imagination.
Eye is a unique reactive environment based on the concepts of OReilly’s game, Everything (2017). Visitors can rotate three oversized controllers to play with the ‘flow’, ‘scale’ and ‘warp’ of the shifting kaleidoscopic formations, or mandalas, on the screen. Unique patterns of living and non-living forms are continuously being generated and no mandala created will ever be seen again.
