This year we bring virtual reality on to the streets of Sheffield in two new pop-up venues, Virtual Reality Portal on Tudor Square and Virtual Reality Campfire at Upper Chapel.

VR portal is a state of the art 360 degree projection dome on Tudor Square that is home to our most transportative virtual reality projects.

Get a special preview of Voyager. An ambitious undertaking by Google’s artist in residence, Jessica Brillhart, Voyager is a re-imagining of the Golden Record - the first object sent in to space to communicate life on earth to extra terrestrials. See Beethoven's Fifth and Navajo Nation.

Venture to the depths of the ocean for a close up look at the Great Barrier Reef or travel through time to a dystopian eco-system of the future where giant insects and fungi have taken over. See Chasing Coral: The VR Experience and Planet ∞.

The following projects will be featured in the Virtual Reality Portal section of the Alternate Realities Exhibition:

Beethoven's Fifth
Navajo Nation
Chasing Coral: The VR Experience
Planet ∞

Entry to Portal on Tudor Square is free but on-the-day booking will be required. Please visit the venue from 12pm on 9th June for more details.
