Escape the bustle of the city with Solace, a meditative, multi-sensory experience inspired by State Library Victoria’s rooms, corridors and quiet corners.
Explore a mini-library of interactive sensory artworks curated by collaborating artists, streamed directly to your device.
Listen to whale song at the Redmond Barry Reading Room, follow the white rabbit through bookshelves and squeaking chairs in the iconic Dome, and carve out moments of respite, comfort and imagination.
Solace is free to stream at the Library. Stay for a moment or for a while, and return as often as you like.
To experience Solace, you will need headphones and a charged mobile device. You may like to connect to wifi to avoid mobile data usage.
Solace was commissioned as part of State Library Victoria’s Alchemy program, created by Melinda Hetzel & Co and presented by State Library Victoria. This project has also been supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grants.
