About

This piece is housed at New Frontier at Kimball Art Center and is open to credential holders.

A barrel bomb drops, blowing rubble everywhere. Amid the destruction, a call for help comes from the debris—a child is trapped inside—but the path to help the victim is treacherous. Will you embark on the hero's journey? Hero is a deeply provocative, immersive, multisensory narrative that evolves as audiences actively participate in its elaborate canvas of virtual and actual environments.
