Virtual Reality Simulator

19 February – 18 March 2012

Cockatoo Island, Sydney


Anybody who grew up playing with video games in the 1980s will recognize this installation. As you enter the space you appear to be inside an early generation computer game. With the electric green grid marks and the fluoro block-like tank, you are physically inside your virtual Commodore 64 or Pac Man video game. Virtual Reality Simulator was included in the group exhibition Drawing Lines in the Sand, curated by Claire Taylor.
