Harvey, a young maintenance technician for an office space based in virtual reality, is sealed inside his workplace after a catastrophic system failure. The same disaster caused his wife to perish whilst locked outside the ‘Doorway’ technology that kept Harvey’s body safe. Stricken with grief, he neglects the effort to save the lives of his co-workers by escaping the office. However, he soon realises the supernatural potential of his technical expertise in this world and decides to play god.
STOP PLAY RECORD forms part of a joint initiative between Arts Council England and Channel 4, which sees the Institute of Contemporary Arts lead a London Network, in partnership with, the Chisenhale Gallery, DAZED, Kingston University and SPACE to provide a range of activities across the capital.
