What we need is to play!
If all things go according to plan, Brisbane Festival will kick off on September 3 and with it will bring wonderful displays of colour and light as well as a multitude of art installations—some are even on a boat. There are a number of free exhibitions and installations to check out, while others are ticketed. For good reason, too.
One such event is the hour-long journey through light, sound, and scent which has sold-out sessions when it opened in Melbourne and wowed visitors with its displays. But for Brisbane, it’s turning up with eight brand-new rooms out of a total of 10.
Titled Imaginaria, this immersive pop-up play space is the work of Loose Collective, a group of designers, architects, audiovisual artists and electronic producers, who have teamed up with other creators, artists and producers to create a wonderland for the senses. And to be honest, we couldn’t be more excited about losing ourselves in what they have created. Over and over again.
The specially designed spaces are meant to be part game, part gallery, and part journey where visitors not only walk through but also interact with what’s going on inside. Thought of as an audio-visual journey from the future, Imaginaria has an anti-gravity space, shimmering light sculptures, a cosmic garden and a white bubble you can enter among other experiences that will test your grasp on reality or present new perspectives.
There are magic moments behind every corner, just waiting for you to arrive. Tickets start at $23.95.
