Equal parts allegory and video game, “Platonic Voyage” by Charles A. Westfall and Layet Johnson uses the Internet and computer technologies to explore ways in which virtual spaces and activities have come to function in contemporary society as a surrogate for the real.

Doors open at 7 pm Thursday with a pre-departure chat at 8 pm and launch at 8:15 pm.

“Platonic Voyage” will be on exhibit for 24 hours.

Arrival at destination: 8:15 pm, with a post-arrival discussion.
