May 25th - November
Kids visiting the award-winning Halifax attraction will be treated to vibrant visual effects and stunning sounds thanks to cutting-edge design and technology, including giant motion-tracking projections capturing children’s movements as they interact with what they see.
This features in the exhibition alongside touch-triggered 3D shapes and luminous touch-sensitive pillars of light.
A visit to Digital Dimensions, housed in Eureka!’s ground-floor Spark Gallery, will allow families to:
- Test memories and coordination in a game against a series of 3D musical cubes – working together to remember patterns to trigger sounds and a colourful chain reaction!
- Weave their way through luminous touch-sensitive colour-changing pillars of light - find the master pole to reset the colours
- Step into a colourful motion-capture tunnel of with astounding visual effects
- Open some truly magical doors to a series of digital dimensions.
Digital Dimensions has been created by first year students studying for a BA (Hons) in Live Visual Design & Production at Backstage Academy, based at Wakefield’s Production Park, a community of live events businesses behind the staging of Beyoncé & Jay-Z and Take That arena tours.
Digital Dimensions is included in the price of admission, or free to Eureka! Annual Pass holders.
