Artifacts from the Multiverse


Artifacts from the Multiverse
 is a gallery show presented as a fictional museum exhibition of artifacts collected from seven parallel dimensions. The experience is complete with an audio guide that outlines the in-depth story of each exhibit. Created by the team behind the film PROSPECT, this show treats the act of world building as an art form - the starting point being the creation of an original world that produces each object.

 
 

LIGHT VIVARIUM

A vivarium of "living light” seeded and grown organically.

 

FLOW TRACK MACHINE

A mashup between a zen garden and a pinball machine. There is no 'end game' - one simply gains mastery of the machine which requires full focus and it brings on a lightly meditative trance.

HOUSHIAN’S FURNITURE

From the audio guide: 

This chair played a significant role in Houshian's quest to merge her polycosmic self. She incorporated it into regular periods of meditation. The intention of this ritual was to increase the probability that multiple instances of herself would be meditating in the same time-place and the overlap would increase her energy density.

This chair is part of a set of furniture designed by the fictional character that also includes a desk and speaker set.
