A project by Danna Vajda developed in collaboration with Willie Brisco. Curated by Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh
Holodeck (and Other Spaces) envelops the entire exhibition space rendering it a simulation of itself: a gallery within a gallery with the potential to transform into anything one can imagine.
âHolodecks' are virtual reality facilities located on starships and star-bases in the fictional Star Trek universe, first introduced in the pilot episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation: Encounter at Farpoint (1987). Danna Vajda's project unfolds through five sequential episodes, each with a structure that tests the idea that a holodeck is an environment loaded with infinite possibilities.
Curators Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh have selected artists to respond to the environment during weekly events in the holodeck. Each contributor has a practice that engages with the motives and possibilities of science fiction as both a cultural phenomenon and a space for envisioning a future horizon.
