MARSHMALLOW LASER FEAST - A Colossal Wave

MARSHMALLOW LASER FEAST

A COLOSSAL WAVE

Virtual reality is usually a solitary affair, but this time you are invited to collectively experience aural and visual immersion in a public space. An actual ball thrown from a great height allows goggle wearers to witness an eruption of colourful drawings. Actions in the real and virtual realms merge, freeing the imagination and intriguing passersby. A Colossal Wave is also linked to the Phi Centre, where participants are invited to explore a different perspective on the connected virtual world.
