'Empire' Installation by Artist Rone


Art should be something of a haunting. A memory imprinted forever inside of you. Artist Rone seems to have created the perfect artistic installation in a rather unexpected place: A sprawling 1930’s abandoned and decrepit Australian mansion.

The artist describes the ruined gallery as “part exhibit, part installation, part VR and AR experience”. Empire combines art, vision, sound, light, botanical design and scent to take audiences on a hauntingly immersive multi-sensory journey through a faded icon. Full details here.
