    Immerse yourself in an alternate reality with a state-of-the-art experience at the Elora Arts Center Gallery. “Journey to the Metaverse” by artist Gord Harris uses custom 3D computer art projections that respond to music to introduce viewers to the magic of synesthesia, where one sense triggers another.

    This exhibition is a great example of STEAM practices (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). Visitors can wear Bluetooth-enabled 3D glasses and enjoy the journey to the fullest. Walking through the gallery, there are various areas set up, including stations where users can freely manipulate the images and experience the sensation of controlling the movement of the projection.

    “This is a great opportunity for our community to be exposed to this type of high-tech virtual reality art form,” said Leanne Carter, executive director of the art center. Gord Harris spent over a year preparing this exhibition. Harris is a creative technologist, display engineer, interactive producer, visual music specialist, photographer and is passionate about technology and music in general. The first part of his career took place in his IMAX and his Christie Digital, and now he is “retired” to continue teaching and exploring his art digitally.

    The exhibition's opening reception will be held on Saturday, February 3rd from 2-4 p.m. Everyone is welcome to meet the artists and tour the gallery as the exhibition opens.

    “Journey to the Metaverse” will run until March 17th and will be held every Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm and Sunday from 12am to 4pm, and admission is free.

    The artists would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council for their support.

    Experience even deeper immersion! For one night only on Saturday, February 24th, there will be a large-scale visual projection on the gallery walls and a live concert featuring the music of composer Jeff Collinson. The combination of immersive technology and live music is sure to inspire and move. Tickets are $20.Click here for more information and tickets here.
