Adelaide International 2014 features artists who suggest new ways of modelling and imagining the world, who map the edges of what is known, and who investigate the potentials of what might lie beyond.Worlds in Collision looks at technological, political, psychological and psychedelic exploration, and the ways artists imagine alternatives to arrive at new understandings of potential and transformation.
Time travel, digital frontiers, abandoned Star Wars sets, near-death experiences, new physics and second moons herald the foundations of this diverse and extraordinary selection of artists and artworks, shown across four sites.
