Step through the looking glass into Experimenta:Vanishing Point, an exhibition that will have you second-guessing your way through a forest of new media artworks. Hot on the heels of Experimenta’s blockbuster success House of Tomorrow, comes Experimenta:Vanishing Point – the next instalment of cutting edge media artworks on offer from 27 of the most innovative artists across Australia and overseas. Experimenta:Vanishing Point is a fun, funky and highly intriguing exhibition that is sure to charm everyone from multi media professionals and lovers of fine art, to students, grandparents and children of all ages.
Experimenta:Vanishing Point brings to Tasmania a new media take on the familiar themes of illusion, virtual reality and pataphysics. It transforms the familiar reality of our everyday environment to reveal the hidden mysteries, the forgotten realm of the imagination, and opens up a space in which one may discover the extraordinary within the ordinary fabric of our world.
