About

“Our nearest neighbour is the Moon, and this project allows us to experience it as a found object in space, to explore its vast open spaces and swoop the ridges and valleys of its craters.” Antony Gormley

Acute Art is delighted to announce the launch of Antony Gormley and Dr. Priyamvada Natarajan’s first virtual reality collaboration, Lunatick, at The Store X, London on the 5th of April 2019.

Lunatick, which is produced by Acute Art, uses data collected by NASA to map a real and interactive journey, leaving Earth to pass through the atmosphere, stratosphere, the asteroid belt, and into outer space.

Gormley, one of the most renowned British contemporary artists working today, collaborated with Dr. Natarajan, an acclaimed astrophysicist and Professor at Yale University, to create an immersive experience that treats the body as a vessel free from gravity, in order to bring the haptic experience of space alive.

To produce the piece, Acute Art used multiscale modelling to recreate tiny elements such as flowers and the colossal objects of the Earth, Moon and the Sun. One of the most significant challenges was to create an optic sensation of the real size of an object, within the infinite scale of the cosmos.

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

There is no age restriction for the piece itself as there are no scary sounds, violence or any visuals that we believe children will find disturbing. Although the VR headset weights approx 500g and we recommend 5 years old and above so they can get the best out of the experience.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Please bring a copy of your ticket confirmation on your phone or printed as we are checking names at the door.

Do you have wheelchair access?

Yes.
