Stories written in stardust

'Stories written in stardust' is an immersive art exhibition, using projection mapping, and created by local artist, Harrie Dearing.

The experience was hosted inside the atmospheric small pool of the historic Health Hydro in Swindon as part of the Festival of Tomorrow 2023 About Town programme in February.


As visitors arrived, they were each given a pair of wireless, over ear headphones before entering the exhibition room. These headsets played the immersive score, and voice over that accompanies the visual work.

Inside the exhibition, the full immersive installation created by artist Harrie Dearing came to life.

Following her Developing Your Creative Practice funding from Arts Council England, Harrie was excited to share her first projection mapping installation at the Festival of Tomorrow, created by digitising physical artwork from her Cosmicscape collection. Through the use of animation and digital components she breathed new life into her artwork.
