Artist Antony Youssef's latest immersive artwork is here for a good time, but not a long time. Otherworldly installation Breach has arrived at Babekuhl's basement gallery, transforming the subterranean space into a technology-driven, interactive dream realm filled with smoke, light and sound. Though you'll have to be quick to score a taste of the alternate reality, as it's set to disappear after this Sunday, April 25.

To access the multi-sensory installation, venture down the gallery's stairs and along a boardwalk surrounded by haze. Then, you'll find yourself right in the heart of the artwork itself, where you'll play conductor — by using your hands to control Breach's central pressurised sphere of pulsating music and sound. It's a bit like playing some fantasy instrument from another planet.

The piece uses Youssef's own custom software to track your hand movements, guiding the unique soundtrack of audio, synths and rhythms each visitor is able to create. A thick blanket of low-lying mist helps to elevate the experience, also upping the eeriness factor.
