Submergene by Squidsoup
Submergence transforms the ROM gallery space into a Mixed Reality environment where virtual and physical worlds coincide. The result is an immersive walkthrough experience that uses light to alter our perceptions of space and presence.
Imagine walking through a virtual world, where pixels on a screen are replaced by thousands of points of light floating in space. These points of light create environments, atmospheres and movement in physical space. This is Submergence, a new project by digital arts collective Squidsoup. 8,064 points of light suspended in a physical walkthrough space measuring 8m x 4m and 4m high.
Submergence is the culmination of a five year research project exploring interactive media experiences that occupy physical space.
