Small Wonders: The VR Experience
Back by popular demand! Available on Saturdays and Sundays from December 17, 2016 to January 22, 2017 during gallery hours.
Immerse yourself inside a prayer bead and explore the intricate carvings made visible through the power of micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) and virtual reality. Produced by the Canadian Film Centre’s Media Lab (CFC Media Lab) and Seneca College School of Creative Art & Animation, this artistic and technical collaboration between the AGO and interactive artist and designer Priam Givord marks the first time anyone will be able to move through, around and within one of these small wonders.
*Please be advised that due to the nature of the experience, children under 13 are not allowed to use the equipment. Students visiting as part of a school group are not permitted to use the VR as children between 14 to 18 are only allowed to use it with their parent’s consent. All visitors can see the VR experience in action on the projection in the exhibition
