David Cronenberg set to debut his multi-platform augmented reality game at TIFF Bell Lightbox
As Canadian directors go, few names have more cred than David Cronenberg. His macabre genius can be polarizing, but there’s no denying the memorability of his work. (Videodrome likely still haunts the average film theory major.) With recent Hollywood hits such as A Dangerous Method and the upcoming Cosmopolis, TIFF has decided to center its first original multimedia exhibition on Cronenberg. Along with the usual props, interviews and reconstructed sets, there will also be a “multi-platform augmented reality game” (called The Worlds of David Cronenberg) that will hopefully be as creepy as it sounds. After all, this man is the king of twisted sensory overload. This exhibit is set to premiere at the TIFF Lightbox next fall, and will begin touring in 2014.
