The exhibition design for Virtual Realms has been created by Chiara Stephenson. Chiara Stephenson is a scenographer with a background in stage design for theatre, ballet and live music events. For this exhibition, Chiara has collaborated with graphic design studio Stinsensqueeze to create the environmental design that ties the commission spaces together and invites audiences to learn more about the commissions through video and wall text. She also collaborated with theatre and music lighting designer Matt Daw to create the surreal colour palettes that infuse the exhibition space. Their design is complete with geometric structures that stand as portals into the commission realms and encourage a spirit of discovery and play throughout the exhibition.
The musician and composer Erland Cooper has created a binaural, ambient score for the entrance of the exhibition, weaving sounds together from each of the realms to create a fabric that offers a glimpse into its multiple landscapes and gradients that follow.
