Have humans shot for the stars, leaving the last of our histories within a supercomputer at the heart of the La Trobe Reading Room? Will the walls of the Redmond Barry Reading Room be lined with the spines of holographic titles?

The far future of State Library Victoria has been imagined by six of our favourite emerging writers and contains everything from robot librarians to a biological bank storing extinct species’ DNA. 2222 is an immersive soundwalk where participants pop on headphones and hear their visions of utopias, dystopias and more.

Featuring works by: Claire G Coleman, Georgia Kartas, Olivia Muscat, Adalya Nash Hussein, Mira Schlosberg and Tegan Webb.

Next showcase: Digital Writer Festival 29 October – 2 November 2019.
