If you are looking for a unique experience, you will soon be able to take a captivating multi-sensory journey through the ecosystem of a vast forest in its upcoming virtual reality installation, We Live in an Ocean of Air. Opening on 28 May 2022 at the Art Science Museum, this will be a one-of-a-kind experience in Singapore.
We Live in an Ocean of Air is a 12-minute-long immersive experience where visitors are invited to follow their breath through the forest while wearing a 5kg backpack, to discover the inner life of a giant sequoia tree. In this stunning multi-sensory experience, state-of-the-art technology including breath sensors and heart rate monitors will help us to visualize the human cardiovascular system as a pulsing red glow and transcribe our breath as a cascade of particles. The resulting artwork is a remarkable, yet meditative encounter that illuminates the invisible connection between humans and the natural world.
We Live in an Ocean of Air is created by Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF), one of the world’s leading experiential art collectives. The spectacular experience premiered in 2018 at The Saatchi Gallery in London for a sold-out run, which was extended twice due to popular demand.
Advanced booking is required and can be made here. Singapore Residents Adult ticket is priced at SG$16.
