Warm Worlds and Otherwise
Visit the new Virtual Reality exhibition by Anna Bunting-Branch. Working with digital arts studio Werkflow, Bunting-Branch has transformed her hand-painted characters, props and backdrops into an immersive virtual story-world. As the viewer is transported between environments - from an unknown planet to a restaurant orbiting in space and beyond - we inhabit the bodies of different human and non-human characters in the narrative. Please note the exhibition uses Oculus Go technology, for which the recommended age is 13+ as the headsets are designed to accommodate pupil distance for adults. Families with children younger than 13 are welcome to explore the exhibition at the discretion of the parent/guardian. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
