Tuesday November 1st, 6-9pm

Wednesday November 2nd, 6-9pm

The Dark Room is an installation operated by the visitor's imagination. In a world bombarded with violent imagery we have become numb. Nothing we physically create can compare to the images of our mind. The Dark Room will ask the visitor to question what they are afraid of.

Visitors to the Dark Room are invited to travel through a pitch-black maze. With their sense of sight removed, they must place their trust in only the rope to guide them along. Visitors will use their remaining heightened senses to travel throughout the room, encountering obstacles that both disorient and challenge the participant. When the journey ends, the visitors are guided out, and handed a token to remind them of the power of their own mind.

Visitors can experience the Dark Room for three nights only!
