Third Age of Light VR Experience opens at RSA

March 28 2019 — by Karina Armburg Jennings
A unique experimental Virtual Reality experience has been installed at the Royal Society of the Arts in London. Created by renowned lighting design studio Speirs + Major the 'Third Age of Light' experience examines how London’s public realm might be experienced after dark in the near future.

Following a successful debut in Paris in November 2017, the content has been fully updated to respond to a number of questions as to how societal attitudes and emerging technologies might change our nightscape.

Visitors will able to explore three virtual areas of London in the near future – the South Bank, King’s Cross, and Primrose Hill. Specific themes within each area provide deeper insight into issues such as augmentation, networks, communities and the environment.

The experience can be accessed Monday – Friday 8:30am – 9:00pm via Rawthmells Coffee House, RSA House, 8 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6EZ until 24th May 2019.
