Mixed Reality Installation
Created By Makers Of Imaginary Worlds and commissioned by Nesta and National Gallery X (The National Gallery and King’s College London)
HOME: Zero is an art installation where visitors enter a fantastical world where time is limited. They make extraordinary things happen when they imagine a more sustainable future in this playful interactive installation where National Gallery paintings provide a magical starting point to think creatively about our own homes.
This unique project has been co-designed with Nottingham families to encourage us all to reimagine how we can make a sustainable difference starting at home. It is suitable for families with children aged 6-10 (max 6 per visit in 25-minute timeslots), admission is free but advance booking is recommended.

HOME: Zero Sketchbook
This pdf guide is best used after you have visited the HOME: Zero installation. It contains ten paintings from the National Gallery's collection that is used in the installation. It is designed for you to take closer look at the paintings and explore more activities with children after your visit.
I love the ambition of immersive theatre and digital experience. I have not a preconceived idea of what it was. My child didn't know what to expect so it was a bit difficult at the beginning but we liked it.
Connection from capturing the object to transformation took a little while but very effective at making link to historical solutions that we can think about.
