The Old Mine at Hemingfield is a virtual tour of a turn of the century coal mine in the north of England. The project was conceived by Iain Nicholls, who we have collaborated with before on the award winning Veil experience in 2015.
Using photogrammetry of the real world it creates a fused dialogue between the real and virtual platforms. This fusion is a key focus for the Iain who also manipulates light and sound to create this fully immersive, historical experience. The installation is narrated by the poet and broadcaster Ian McMillan.
Currently the work is on display at the Gazelli Art House gallery in Mayfair, London as part of the group show Enter Through The Headset 2.
