Spacewalkers : Virtual Reality (VR)
January 1 - February 27
ArtScience Museum’s new VR Gallery is a permanent gallery space that celebrates curiosity, innovation and experimentation through cutting-edge virtual reality artworks.
The VR Gallery offers one-of-a-kind immersive experiences from some of the world’s most renowned artists, scientists, museums and film festivals through state-of-the-art VR headsets and controllers, exploring the unlimited possibilities of VR on a cinematic scale by pushing the boundaries of reality and discovering the unexplored.
Spacewalkers – which blurs the lines between fairytale and fiction – is a soaring exploration of life beyond earth, retracing the footsteps of the first humans on the moon. Look through their mirror-glazed visors, hear your soul rattle while hurtling across the stars, plummet into the zen stillness of the lunar void.
Features two exhilarating VR artworks :
- 1st Step – From Earth to the Moon
- 2nd Step – From the Moon to Mars and Beyond
Both debuted at the first-ever Expanded section of the Venice Film Festival in 2020. These works were painstakingly moulded using exclusive archival footage and recordings from NASA on the Apollo missions.
Spacewalkers celebrates humanity’s limitless quest into the unknown through the eyes of those who made it there and back – and through those who would turn what if’s into reality.
