Lincoln exhibit invites you to step into digital world

More news, no ads


A new exhibition which will transport visitors to the digital world is coming to a popular museum.

The Collection Museum in Lincoln is bringing an immersive, digital world to visitors, filled with creatures that you can design, interact and play with.

Opening on July 9, Microworld: Lincoln is made up of eight spectacular digital worlds – or ‘ecosystems’ – and the moment you enter the gallery you will become part of the transformative experience.

While there, audience members can design their very own creature using their smartphones, or on tablets provided in the gallery.

Once the creatures are released into the unique digital realm, the audience can interact with them through movement and watch how they respond to their surroundings and other artificial life.

Jenny Gleadell, exhibitions officer at The Collection Museum, said: “It’s an old cliché but this exhibition really does have something for everyone. On the face of it, families will enjoy creating creatures and interacting with them in these bright, colourful, digital worlds.

“Our tech-savvy visitors will be able to geek-out about the technology used to create these spaces and interact with them. And others will enjoy seeing how the exhibition explores the relationships between us, the digital world, and the natural world.

“I’m sure all our visitors will find it beautiful, fun and unique though!”

Microworld is an evolving space with colours, patterns, shapes and artificial beings which are connected to everything else, making it ever changing and not even the creators can predict what will happen next.

Artists Genetic Moo have run 15 Microworlds which have delighted more than 250,000 visitors around the world, including audiences at Eureka the National Children’s Museum in Halifax. However, it has never-before been shown on this scale.

Those looking for a more relaxed experience can visit during the ‘Chilled Out’ opening hours on Wednesday mornings from 9am to 10am.
