Jess Johnson and Simon Ward : Eclectrc Panoptic #video #vr [#geekgirl]

Jess Johnson and Simon Ward : Eclectrc Panoptic from arts-news on Vimeo.

Eclectrc Panoptic teases back layers of cognition, reflecting New Zealand born artist Johnson’s interest in science fiction, alternative universes and the slippery nature of perception and reality.

Comprised of a suite of drawings, tessellating patterns and virtual reality technology, the exhibition becomes a bridging portal into another realm. The installation takes its genesis from the psychomagic group rituals conceived by the visionary filmmaker and comic book writer Alejandro Jodorowsky; and the technological themes of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel ‘Dune’. Concealed within the space is ‘Ixian Gate’, a virtual reality artwork that can only be experienced through an Oculus Rift headset, plunging participants into the dystopic world of her drawings.
