SQUIDSOUP

Squidsoup is an international group of artists, researchers, technologists and designers headquartered in the United Kingdom that works with digital and interactive media experiences.

SUBMERGENCE

This installation presented by < Arte Abierto > created by the collective Squidsoup consists of a large scale immersive and dynamic experience, composed by thousands of points of suspended light to create feelings of presence and movement within a physical space.

Submergence transforms the < Arte Abierto > space into a hybrid environment where virtual and physical worlds coincide. As you enter, you are walking into a space occupied by both real and virtual components, and you can affect both.

The piece moves through several movements, creating a semi-linear 12 minute piece. In its entirety, an abstract narrative is formed with a gradual increase in tension, building up to a final climax. Each movement has its own elements, atmosphere and levels of reaction. They are also all open to one’s own interpretation.

Submergence (2016) is an incremental development of the original Submergence (2013).

Submergence se ha mostrado en más de 40 espacios y eventos en seis continentes incluyendo:

Canary Wharf – 2019
