Salvador Dali’s surrealist artworks are pretty distinctive, and arguably, his most famous piece, The Persistence of Memory has been studied by many in such detail, you’d think we’d exhausted the ways in which we can view it. So, what if I said that you can see this masterpiece in a brand-new way at a futuristic digital exhibition coming to The Boiler House in Brick Lane this December? View the painting, and many of Dali’s other pieces, from a new perspective at Dali : Cybernetics, which in a world first, will allow you to step into the ‘metaverse’…
What can you expect at Dali : Cybernetics?
Salvador Dali’s mind bending artworks meet 2022’s reality bending technology at this exhibition; The Boiler House will be transformed into a 360-degree digital art show, with floor-to-ceiling projections of Dali’s artworks, sound effects, holograms, artificial intelligence and more. You’ll be able to come almost nose to nose with these pieces, perhaps gaining an even better insight to the Spanish painter than before.
However, arguably the star of the show is the one-of-a-kind virtual reality experience, which for 15 minutes, will enable you to enter the ‘metaverse’ with your fellow guests and quite literally step into Dali’s artworks. Each visitor will have a digital avatar, who’ll be able to walk around in the surreal, dreamlike space with total freedom of movement, interacting with fellow guests in real time. You’ll be totally immersed in Dali’s most recognisable works, experiencing them like never before.
Having had much success in Barcelona, the futuristic exhibition will be on tour for around four years, stopping in cities all over the world, from Budapest to Brussels. Once open in London, Dali : Cybernetics will welcome visitors Wednesday – Monday each week, and the experience will last around 90 minutes. There’ll be a range of ticket options available – browse them here – so be sure to pick the right one for you and your group.
