Following over 150million views of her signature underwater wheelchair performance and powerful TED talk, internationally acclaimed artist Sue Austin curates new work, inviting you to become ‘Immersed in 360’ in her home town of Torrington, Devon, and at the innovative Salisbury Arts Centre this spring.

This research exhibition features dance and performance on video by Kevin Clifford and Sue Austin, creating a fully immersive audience experience using Oculus VR headsets and projection onto stunning, ethereal 360 degree installations.

“I’m completely passionate about 360 imagery because it’s a new aesthetic, it’s very powerful,” says Austin. “But I also realise that the costs make it inaccessible to most, so this project is specifically about developing 360 in a way that’s useable and affordable for the arts sector and beyond.”

Supported by the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts and presented through portable 360° interactive headsets plus affordable, transportable 360° installations this will research meaningful, home and community based, inspiring art experiences for audiences currently excluded from accessing arts venues due to disabling physical, psychological, and financial barriers.

Visitors are encouraged to participate in the research, particularly on the Wednesday of each exhibition when members of the SERIO research team, based at Plymouth University will be there to ask for responses from people about their experiences of the exhibition.
