Region: Philadelphia & The Countryside
Admission fee: $0
HOT•BED is pleased to present WAITING ROOM, a six person show featuring works by Aidan Fowler, Alyson Denny, Lyn Godley, Jessica Judith Beckwith, Philip Hart, Yael Erel, and the winners of the 2022 Immersive Arts for Health Student Design Competition (IAHSDC). Works included in this show use light, shadow, and movement to create immersive experiences that mesmerize, enchant, and captivate. Each installation is a “waiting room” for the audience to spend time becoming immersed in experiences of calm, inspiration, and transformation. WAITING ROOM also features the winning entries of the 2022 IAHSDC organized by the Jefferson Center of Immersive Arts for Health, a design, research, and academic initiative dedicated to studying the impact of dynamic and interactive art on healing. As part of ongoing research, viewers will be able to take part in a survey to collect feedback on their individual experiences of the installations. WAITING ROOM will be on view September 17 - November 19, 2022, with an opening reception September 17th from 6-9 PM, and a closing reception May November 19th from 6-9 PM.
