From 7 to 18 October the BFI London Film Festival will be the first ever edition to be widely accessible wherever you are in the UK, with over 50 virtual premieres, free online events and cinema screenings across the land.
LFF Expanded is the new strand of XR and Immersive art. Alexa Pollmann, Bruno Martelli, Bine Roth and choreographer Ruth Gibson’s exceptional artistic project re-imagines this one-off historical event. Zig-zag motifs – inspired by the naval dazzle-ship patterns from the First World War – are applied to costumes and set design, playing with audiences’ vision and perception. These astonishing visuals build the optical framework for a multi-sensory live-performance and fine arts exhibition, which will premiere in spring 2021. It’s an incredible fusion of dance and immersive technology for multiple participants. We are proud to present a work-in-progress single-user-version of the show. Let’s have a Ball!
You’ll need an Oculus Rift, Rift S or HTC Vive tethered headset to experience this work for free
