The latest in an ever-growing number of artists to try their hand at VR technology, Collishaw has recreated one the earliest ever photography exhibitions – when pioneer William Henry Fox Talbot presented some of his pictures at a school in Birmingham in 1839. Visitors can become fully immersed in this portal to the past and walk freely about the digitally reconstructed room. Appearing as ghostly figures to other visitors, you can touch bespoke vitrines and fixtures, interact with objects on display, hear rioters outside and even feel the warmth of an open fire. Spooktacular. Find out more here.
