title. everywhen room-scale virtual reality experience
date. 2018 - ongoing
role. lead artist and developer
a speculative room-scale vr experience that transports the participant to a tidally locked world where space and time are deeply intertwined
imagine a constant sun directly overhead.
unmoving, neither rising nor setting, no respite from heat and no escape from being burned.
or a still sunset.
beautiful but permanent, the beauty not quite beautiful because this is the only way it has ever existed.
or a perennial darkness.
cold and windy, no anticipated light, night never giving way to day.
a visit to everywhen will harbour contemplation and discovery, participation and surprise. it may behave as a mirror for you in the same way as it does for us.
you will enter a speculative virtual reality installation transporting you to this world: to feel what it might be like for time to speed up, to slow down, to bend.
and to listen for echoes from the past and future.
