Meet the creators of Through the Wardrobe and Echo, the two interactive works from this year's Alternate Realities exhibition
Join us for an exclusive talk with Rob Eagle and Georgie Pinn in conversation with Barbican senior producer Siddharth Khajuria.
Rob Eagle's augmented reality installation Through the Wardrobe is a documentary mixed-reality installation that explores the daily considerations non-binary people (people who don't identify as male or female) must make in expressing their gender identity through clothing.
In Georgie Pinn's interactive installation Echo, audiences step into the shoes of another through a virtual mirror, select a shared story and discover layers of themselves echoed back in a deeply personal exploration of human experience.
Alternate Realities is Sheffield Doc/Fest's pioneering digital art exhibition of interactive and immersive non-fiction.
This event is open to Barbican Members and Membership Plus only.
Members are welcome to bring a guest, they will need their own ticket.
