Alternate Realities

As part of the 2019 Brighton Digital Festival, we are exhibiting three interactive and immersive artworks from the internationally renowned Sheffield Doc/Fest Alternate Realities exhibition.

The three artworks enable intimate encounters with people and places, and include a virtual reality piece, an interactive documentary, and an installation that allows you to step into someone else’s shoes through a virtual mirror. In an increasingly divided world – be that politically, economically or ideologically – this exhibition connects us to individuals, lives and stories that we would not necessarily encounter.

Sheffield Doc/Fest’s Alternate Realities Exhibition is a leading platform for interactive and immersive non-fiction experiences from around the world. The second Alternate Realities UK Tour is presented by Sheffield Doc/Fest with partners Lighthouse, Brighton, HOME, Manchester and the Barbican, London.
