Description: Whilst this series of experiments that shaped our future tested the possibility of creating digital simulations to emulate reality, Manuel Roßner’s installation Ultralight Beam recreates the virtual world in the real world, thereby bringing not only the logic but also the aesthetics of computer programmes into an actual walk-in space. Industrial buildings and pipe systems can be constructed in 3D infrastructure software. Different colours are used to help us find our way around the three-dimensional plans and indicate the diameter of the pipes. When we see these garishly coloured pipes running through an equally brightly coloured room, we are reminded of a glorious children’s playground, but they can actually be traced back to the functionality of the programme.

Review: Float Gallery is a free virtual art gallery in which you can see some works of art by various artists. Some are colour and interesting and some are thought-provoking, but they are all worth a look at least once and the good news is this app is free so anyone can view them if they want. Look…I get that this is not going to be for everyone, but for those of us who enjoy art and going to galleries, it’s a nice little experience to escape inside. But it is a good job that it is free and any fee would have put me off recommending it.
