Samuel Walker: Rapture baiting
Curator: Samuel Arsenault-Brassard, ELLEPHANT VR artist and curator
The VR work takes place inside a modest suburban bedroom, where a bed-bound, reclined character is entangled in linen bed sheets. The work involves a dive into the character’s thoughts and fantasies, as the viewer shares an intimate perspective of the character’s voyage into a world of ennui. An ordinary window displays surreal, dreamlike landscapes and prophetic visions in the distance, as long stretches of time elapse.
