“The Eyes of Time helps our players rediscover the world,” says Director and Co-Founder Devon Hoffman, “We intersect alternate realities with existing places, opening new spaces of imagination to play in and explore—this changes the way you see reality.”
Velarde-based collective The Eyes of Time debuts two new site-specific art installations at form & concept and the Jean Cocteau Cinema. Start the adventure with Unlock the Paradox at form & concept, featuring a series of Paradox Incubators comprising tendrils sprawling across the gallery's front windows. Their physical form is elevated by augmented reality, where viewers are invited to traverse worlds and meet an otherworldly being with a very human problem.
MANIAC Virus transpires at the Jean Cocteau Cinema. Contained within a movie-poster lives a corrupted hard drive harboring a dangerous passenger—the world's first computer virus.There, visitors are, again, able to cross worlds; this time they meet Patient Zero from when the MANIAC Virus bridged the liminal from hardware to humanity.
An interactive zine connects these two experiences with an exploration of the historic corridor.
