Experience what it’s like to step inside a black hole with a brand-new immersive experience from audiovisual pioneers Marshmallow Laser Feast.
The new work, titled 'Distortions in Space Time', will turn participants’ bodies into particle clouds on a giant screen, then give them the sense of being squashed, stretched and spaghettified as they are affected by gravitational waves created by two black holes crashing into each other.
Exploring the space and interacting with each other will reward participants with opportunities to see particle jets whipped up, observe gravitational lensing and pass through the photon sphere. And as they move towards the singularity, things will start to get weird…
The piece is commissioned in partnership by Manchester Science Festival, the British Science Festival, and the University of Hull.
