VR Multimedia Installation

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


"The Infinite Library" is a travelling installation that uses VR and other media to reimagine the future of libraries as interactive spaces that engage visitors through multisensory forms of storytelling. It seeks to embed human stories within a much grander narrative, one which includes the birth of our planet and the evolution of all life forms. 

The ‘Library’ part of the installation is conceived as a living organism, a kind of embodiment of knowledge that introduces itself to visitors personally before in- inviting them to explore its house.

This includes a QR code game, holograms, 3D-printed objects, audiovisual works, and the project’s central piece: a vast VR library set in a cave. Within this virtual space, the Infinite Library hosts smaller sub-libraries, the first ones dedicated to Polynesian Navigation, South Indian Puppetry, and European Alchemy.


“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.”

The exhibition will be launched on Saturday 23rd July at 11 am and continues until Friday 29th July. Everybody is welcome.
