Warm Worlds and Otherwise is artist Anna Bunting-Branch’s first major solo exhibition, staging an experimental new work in Virtual Reality.

The exhibition draws on Bunting-Branch’s long-standing interest in the encounters between feminist practice and science fiction, to explore ideas of worldbuilding, embodied perception and technologies of representation.

The exhibition’s centre-piece is META, a new work in VR, jointly commissioned by Wysing Arts Centre, The Mechatronics Library, FACT, Liverpool and QUAD. Bunting-Branch, working closely with digital arts studio Werkflow, has transformed her hand-painted characters, props and backdrops into an immersive virtual story-world. As the viewer is transported between environments – from an unknown planet to a restaurant orbiting in space and beyond – we inhabit the bodies of different human and non-human characters in the narrative.
