Every Second, the debut show in the new digital immersion gallery is now playing

A 6,000 square-foot gallery has been built at TELUS Spark Science Centre that dials up digital projection by immersing guests in a story that unfolds as they follow a pathway. This project was developed by the science centre with Supply and Demand Studio Inc., a company started by former multimedia director at Cirque du Soleil.

The first digital show, called Every Second, takes the viewer on a journey about life, the moments that matter, the time that passes and the seconds that count. Narrated by Italian-American actress, author, and philanthropist, Isabella Rossellini, the show was written and directed by Les 7 Doigts, an iconic creative troupe based in Montreal, Quebec and runs for approximately 15 minutes.

Every Second will run until January 30, 2022.

Spark will present a new show in the digital immersion gallery every six months! Stay tuned for updates.

Experience

  • The digital experience is like being in a 15-minute walk-through movie. It is dimly lit. Parents must keep small children with them at all times, and keep hands off the screens and walls. Please, no running or screaming as it will disrupt the experience for others.
  • Please note, no food or drink is permitted in the gallery, so plan to eat before or after. Spark is home to a restaurant with hot food as well as a café that serves cappuccinos, light snacks and sandwiches, and Astronaut Ice Cream!
  • Groups of up to 25 may enter every six minutes so your trip through the story may be shared with individuals outside of your cohort. Please maintain social distance. Masks are encouraged.

Isabella Rossellini

Every Second is narrated by the incomparable Isabella Rossellini. Born in Rome, Italy, this Italian actress and model made her screen debut in a film called Vincente Minnelli's A Matter of Time (1976). Her career as a model effortlessly segued into her career as an actress, as her unforgettable performances can be found in projects like "Blue Velvet" (1987), "Wild at Heart" (1990) and "Big Night" (1996). Her powerful and unique abilities in her performances, led to similar roles in films like "Death Becomes Her" (1992), but she showed a talent for comedy in "The Imposters" (1998) and grittier fare in "Crime of the Century" (HBO, 1996), among many others.

Alongside her career in acting, Isabella Rossellini is also an author, activist, and philanthropist, and for decades she has continued to be a symbol of art, class, free-spiritness, and timelessness.

Where science and art come together!

New shows every six months. 'Every Second' is on now until January 30, 2022.
