Fusion: Adventures in Digital Art at Eureka!, 16 June–25 November 2018, from £5.25 - Book now

Eureka! may have celebrated its 25th birthday last year but never rests on its laurels. The UK’s national children’s museum, which is all about learning and making sense of the world through play, is now enabling us to explore some of the most exciting digital tech from around the world in new temporary exhibibition Fusion: Adventures in Digital Art.

Created by the Lumen Prize for Digital Art, 14 large-scale interactive pieces from finalists or winners of this prestigious competition have been brought together for the first time from across the world.

We love the fact that young people can interact with the very best of this new art form, no holds barred.

Interact with a digital waterfall from San Francisco-based artist Marpi, touching and guiding the water particles across multiple large touch screens in The Wave. Become part of artists Genetic Moo’s Microworld transforming yourselves into digital creatures and more. Talk, clap and sing to digital clock Audiograph from Florida’s Nathan Selikoff which translates sound into light.

Head into human-sized scanner Passage from Bonjour Interactive Lab. Previously exhibited at the Louvre no less it will transform you into a 3D image and soundprint.  Alter plant-like shapes to develop your own forest of flowers or trees in Flora by Philipp Artus too.

These large-scale multi-media works allow families to play with technology on another level. Motion-capture sensors and floor-to-ceiling projections transport you to another world of larks together.

We’re excited also that there are new plans afoot both for Eureka’s! Halifax site (just a jump away from Halifax station) and new Eureka! Mersey science and discovery centre on Wirral Waterfront in the coming years.

Admission to Fusion: Adventures in Digital Art is included in the price of admission to Eureka!, or free to Eureka! Annual Pass holders.
