OUT OF LINE: “Heisenberg,” by Janani Balasubramanian

Date & Time
  • Thursday, July 20, 2017 9:00 pm to 10:00 pm
  • Location

    On the High Line at 14th St.

    Janani Balasubramanian's new work "Heisenberg" is an invitation to participate in an audio-based immersive reality game that explores concepts of uncertainty and chaos. Players start at the beginning of time and move through a series of matter/energy transformations, each emphasizing the limits of personal understanding—a cue from the piece's namesake, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle—to learn a deep, fantastic secret that's been hiding brilliantly in plain sight.

    Now in its second year, Out of Line presents a new set of arresting, intriguing, and playful performances by some of New York City's most exciting contemporary artists.
