VR Multimedia Installation

“I am The Infinite Library, the snake that eats its tail. I am the sun and moon. I live in the Cloud. There are no books in my house. My knowledge is alive. It surrounds you.”

Are you ready to celebrate and dive deep into the different realms of culture? We have something exciting for you.

Join us for the launch of the Virtual Reality (VR) installation, The Infinite Library, an immersive storytelling experience that visualises different cultural backgrounds across past, present, and future, expanding the concept of the library into a cross-cultural concept of knowledge transfer through VR rooms.

23 – 27 March 2022

The Infinite Library VR Installation and Shadow Puppetry Exhibition in Library | 10:00 Am - 6:00 PM Evening Event in Lawns/ Hall | 6:30 PM

Goethe-Institut, Library and Garden

Obligatory; On spot

Within this virtual space, The Infinite Library hosts smaller sub-libraries, all of which are connected by nature. Each VR room introduces one knowledge system, the first ones dedicated to South Indian Puppetry, European Alchemy, and Polynesian Navigation from around the world that cannot be communicated via print.

In addition to the above-mentioned premiere, the installation will also feature an exhibition of the Indian Shadow Puppets along with series of events to the sub-library “The Library of Shadow” curated by the Indian shadow puppetry expert Anurupa Roy. Every evening, there would be series of events to accompany the VR project - artists talk, interactive workshop with puppets, presentations and films on traditional shadow puppetry, its journey and link to digital medium.

Furthermore, there would be multiple opportunities for you to interact with the project director and experts- Mika Johnson, Anurupa Roy and Gunduraju, among several others.

Block your calendars and join us to this infinite journey of knowledge.

“Welcome to the Infinite Library. You are not lost. You are home.”
