ACMI is presenting the event in partnership with Sandpit, Google’s Creative Lab and Grumpy Sailor.
Ghosts, Toast and the Things Unsaid opens in time for Halloween as part of Melbourne International Games Week from 29 Oct to 13 Nov.
ACMI in partnership with Sandpit, Google’s Creative Lab and Grumpy Sailor presents a new VR commission called Ghosts, Toast and the Things Unsaid as a short and unusual kind of exhibition where viewers don a ghost costume to view the work instead of a regular VR headset.
Ghosts, Toast and the Things Unsaid invites audiences into the lives of two characters, Maude and Steve, and into the kitchen where they fell in love and grew old together over 50 years.
The exhibit at ACMI is based on a play co-developed by Google's Creative Lab and Sandpit which was first performed at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, where it won the ‘Best Interactive’ award). ACMI’s commission incorporates a 360 ? video recording of the live performance into a 16 minute VR experience.
