Heaven’s Gate is an immersive digital work created by Marco Brambilla, a videographer exposing relatable subjects. Ponder over seven digital artworks inspired by the seven cardinal sins. It’s presented as both an immersive installation and in a virtual reality experience. You will see film clips that form a “digital totem” that makes you reflect on themes of consumerism and excess. You’ll surely recognize elements the have become common memes in popular culture. This experience runs on an infinite loop, but the overall duration is around six minutes.
The second stop of the pathway is the free summer exhibit at Centre PHI, INVERSE. This experimental documentary by Nicolas Jenkins highlights our understanding of “the fluidity and changing nature of gender and sexuality”thanks to the collaboration of several participants from queer communities in New York.
Please note that for the virtual reality experience it is possible to wear glasses, but contact lenses are advised. This experience is free for children 8 and under, but be aware that the work does contain scenes of nudity.
