Other Worlds

Vector Festival 2014

As a partner venue for the festival, InterAccess presents Other Worlds (curated by Prostethic Knowledge and mrghosty), an exhibition which addresses digital space as procedural landscape, as well as two evenings of live performance, and several workshops. Rather than creating games where prescribed routes and narratives direct player movement and action, the works featured in Other Worlds position the player as a digital flaneur, who is free to move in any direction they like, while occupying the position of a detached observer. Other Worlds features the Canadian exhibition debut of the The Night Journey, created by Bill Viola and Tracy Fullerton. Other artists in the exhibition include: Luis Hernandez, Alex Myers & Jeff Thompson, Lea Albaugh, Arkane Kids, Ed Key & David Kanaga, Alan Kwan, Cyril Lecomte-Languérand, and Axel Shokk.
