More about Body Place:

Body Place is an immersive exhibition with an interactive digital world built on First Peoples knowledges, experimental processes, and new technologies. Experience a gamified story cycle of intergenerational healing – led by Wiradjuri-Scottish artist April Phillips, with Pat Younis, Jordan East, Warren Foster Jnr., Mark Leahy and Alvin Zhong.

April Phillips is a Wiradjuri-Scottish woman of the Galari peoples, based on the Yuin Nation. April is aligned with representations of Indigenous futurism and intergenerational healing to celebrate the potential of computer art for a new world.

In real time, the companion sky spirit takes the audience for a celestial virtual walk on Country – from the depths of subterranean soils, to a ground-level play space, ascending to meet the clouds.

Leveraging boundary-pushing technologies, Body Place combines real-time person tracking and motion capture. This allows audiences to roam an expansive illuminated 14-metre screen, in Utp’s purpose-built space.

Exhibition Dates: 2-30 March
