Open your eyes, ears and mind when you visit the Works of Nature exhibition from London-based experimental art collective Marshmallow Laser Feast. The world premiere immersive exhibition challenges visitors to see the world from a new standpoint by highlighting the hidden connections between ourselves and nature, beyond our everyday perception.
Pay a visit to Fed Square’s ACMI from November 23 until April 14 to experience Marshmallow Laser Feast’s first major exhibition in Australia, running for a limited season only. Previously, the group has wowed audiences around the globe, from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum to the Sundance and Tribeca film festivals. The collective has made use of its two creative technology specialties, digital art and virtual reality, to create an experience designed to spark renewed wonder in nature, space, science and even the simple act of breathing.
Works of Nature consists of five awe-inspiring artworks incorporating interactive elements of meditation to add to the mesmerising experience. Marshmallow Laser Feast partner and director Ersin Han Ersin says each artwork is inspired by the collective’s passion for “ecology, astronomy and technology”.
“[Our passion has] driven us to collect tree data in the Amazon, explore the sound of black holes, and scan the entirety of the human body in microscopic detail, then transforming these explorations into transcendent, immersive experiences.”
Marshmallow Laser Feast is led by artists and directors Robin McNicholas, Ersin Han Ersin and Barnaby Steel. The list of contributors to this particular exhibition is nothing short of star-studded, including Australian actor and film producer Cate Blanchett, Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood and the late film producer Edward R Pressman. Tickets range from $5-20 and the exhibition is open from 10am-5pm daily.
