In the Victorian catacombs beneath the Merchant City, in a building which housed one of the city’s first print shops, lurks a siren summoning us towards the post-print age. Donning a VR helmet, visitors make their way through a series of immersive digital environments – designed in a unique collaboration among four of Scotland’s foremost audiovisual art teams – that draw from their makers’ background in 3-D imaging, games design, soundtrack composition, neuroscience and more. Reacting to human movement, each environment becomes a spectacular vista, by turns playful and mesmerising: visions of an alluring future that’s coming closer with every moment.
“There’s no plan to be evil. A siren server seduces you.” Jaron Lanier
