Spatial is a new initiative at the National Gallery of Australia, providing an online environment for the exhibition of electronic works of art. The first new media work to be displayed in Spatial is HyperCollider by Chris Henschke.

Created as part of the Metis 2004 festival, HyperCollider explores the relationship between space and time raised by Einstein’s theories of special and general relativity — how velocity and gravity affect movement through time.

Concurrent to the virtual manifestation, HyperCollider will also exist temporarily in material form as large scale, panoramic prints of the device and the space within it. These visual moments in spacetime are displayed as part of the Gallery's Lift Art project, where an elevator's traffic and trajectory heighten a passenger's sense of movement through time and space.

Interact with HyperCollider at Spatial from 1 May 7 August 2004.

HyperCollider is approximately 6MB in size and requires Shockwave player installed
