Room With A View

“An inventive survivalist bunkers down in Room 303, as outside, things start getting weird.”

Together with Highsnobiety, Semi-Permanent launched a take-over of Sydney’s Paramount House for two days.
Running from May 26-27, 2021, the immersive experience brought together music, fashion, cinema, art and design – in what was a completely unique experience comprising exhibitions, installations, a talks programme, live and digital performances, film screenings, commercial pop-ups and tastings.

The installation.

Unreal Engine was used to create three looping narratives within a dystopian set piece and played on three viewing formats; a small screen embedded in a home-made telescope, an HD hotel room flat screen and a black and white CRT monitor. Scattered about the space were physical artifacts hoarded by the survivor.
