Eureka! Brave Boy Billy & Microworld

April 27, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 3, 2018 @ 5:00 pm

Visit the Ground Floor of our Spark Gallery to meet Brave Boy Billy – a ground-breaking reality sculpture – and explore Microworld – five interactive digital ecosystems.

Brave Boy Billy – by Jason Wilsher Mills

Meet Billy, the augmented reality sculpture with a smile big enough to light up any gallery!
Billy’s outfit includes a series of badges that, when viewed using our tablets, trigger colourful, unexpected augmented reality reactions bringing the sculpture to life before your eyes, each telling the story of one of the young people that worked with Jason.
Billy is at Eureka! until June 2.

Microworld – by Genetic Moo

Immerse yourself in Microworld, a series of interactive digital ecosystems populated by weird and wonderful creatures that react to their surroundings, each other, and YOU!
These fantastical creatures can respond, react and adapt, using tech such as webcams, microphones and Kinect sensors to help them see, hear and feel what is going on around them. The creatures taking up residence in our Spark Gallery will be Squidlets, Animats, Seeds, Maggots and Multiple.
