The Tell-Tale Rooms: Virtual Reality Experience and Immersive Installation
10:00-17:00, Monday 16 January to Friday 26 January (excluding Sunday 20 January)
Free, drop-in

The Tell-Tale Rooms is a 12-minute father/daughter collaboration by artists Andrew and Eden Kötting. Experienced through a Virtual Reality headset and immersive installation, audiences are led on a journey into artist Eden’s fantastical world. Blending animation, archive and live action, the work celebrates the wonders of Eden’s rare neurological syndrome by opening up the fusty doors of perception into a world of 360 virtual reality.

“The visionary climax to the collaboration between Andrew and Eden Kötting, from sea to forest to the cosmos, comes when you are strapped into a VR headset for a hallucinogenic hyper-reality tour around Louyre, the hideaway Pyrenean farmhouse. Those who are able to enjoy this experience are the truly privileged: disorientated, discombobulated, shaken and definitively stirred. It would be tempting to stay with the opening vision on the mountain summit and the spinning panorama of grey rock. A sculpted landscape of legend. As close as we are going to come to heaven.”

 – Iain Sinclair, writer and filmmaker

The work is funded by Arts Council England, BFI Network and XR Stories.
