Habitat takes you to the moon and back as part of the Tumbalong Lights Inclusive playSPACE at Vivid Sydney.
Managing partners at Habitat Media, Antony Neeson and Mark Vincent, have designed and created an ‘out of this world’ immersive experience for people of all abilities as part of Vivid’s Tumbalong Lights Inclusive playSPACE.
‘To the Moon & Back’ is an interactive ‘room’ installation that uses sound, light and space imagery to evoke a sense of discovery that honours the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing.
From the moment visitors sit in the wheelchair-accessible lunar buggy, a three-minute immersive audio-visual sequence takes them to the moon and back.
Working within the theme of a world of inclusion, Habitat Media have collaborated with young people with disabilities to design the flags that adorn the moon buggy.
Visitors will blast off from NASA’s base and rocket into orbit, then land of the moon’s surface where they will see our tiny blue planet from a very different perspective before taking off into space once more and landing safely back on earth.
Habitat Media co-managing partner, Mark Vincent said: “We are so excited to be invited once again to collaborate with Cushman + Wakefield, and Vivid in 2019.
“We want to take Vivid attendees on an immersive journey to the moon and back while allowing them to experience the inclusivity of this space.”
Partner Antony Neeson added: “This year, the space and LED wall is completely reconfigured to ensure that this is a new experience for those returning visitors.”
The Installation is in Tumbalong Lights Inclusive playSPACE from Thursday 23rd May until June 15th, from 5 pm -11 pm each night.
