A Mixed Media installation

This installation was a multi-participant sensory experience. As viewers explored the space they were guided by recordings of voices reciting passages from religious, scientific and philosophical texts. Inspired by the idea that these discourses are languages we use in an attempt to make sense of the world, the installation was a metaphor for the on-going human attempt to answer questions about reality and perception.
