Bryn Oh: Hunt for Story Fragments

Indoor Flight

I've been really enjoying the Light and Gravity exhibits,today exploring Bryn Oh's glorious build.

It's a deceptively simply one. The first room only has a single exit, and honestly if I hadn't peeked through a wall and seen something I didn't see in the first few rooms, I might have stopped there and moved on to the next display.

Instead, I ended up in a very enjoyable hunt through the build, finding things to sit on as I went so I could insinuate myself into a variety of interwoven scenes. Hopping behind walls, sneaking through narrow crevasses, poising myself at corners and intersections - it was like a treasure hunt with evocative, melancholy scenes around every curve.

Flying Into Microchips

I especially liked how she used light - different tints in rooms, using transparency and shade; it really captured my imagination and attention. Each setting seemed like a little story in and of itself, some hearkening back to tales Bryn Oh has told before and others hinting at stories that might come in the future.
