Innocence of the Apocalypse: an immersive installation at the Melbourne Fringe Festival

The Melbourne Fringe Festival has fully wrapped and I have a favourite: Innocence of the Apocalypse was an immersive art installation by projection artist Yandell Walton and street artist I & The Others (Kirrily Anderson).

It was supported by the City of Yarra, incorporating projection, illustration, performance and sound. The audience experienced a dark journey in which children dwell, shadows flicker, lights play tricks, and sounds echo.

I was blown away by the creativity I witnessed inside this old abandoned house in Collingwood. The entire concept was dark, distinctive, and amazingly inspiring.
