Thresholds: virtual reality artwork by Mat Collishaw (Bradford, UK)

March 2 - May 7

Thresholds by Mat Collishaw from Mat Collishaw Studio on Vimeo.

Be transported through space and time by Thresholds—a fully immersive portal to the past.

In 1839, British scientist William Henry Fox Talbot presented his photographic prints to the public; in doing so, he created the world’s first major photography exhibition.

Almost 180 years later, you can visit Talbot’s seminal exhibition for yourself with Thresholds, an extraordinary virtual reality artwork by Mat Collishaw. See, hear and feel the past as you take a multisensory journey back in time. Walk through a digitally reconstructed room and marvel at Talbot’s inventions—you will even feel the heat of a coal fire.

Visit Thresholds and experience the dawn of photography like never before.
