Submergence is a large, immersive, walkthrough experience. It uses more than 5,000 individual points of suspended light to create feelings of presence and movement within physical space.
The installation will transform the court of the Old Town Hall space into a hybrid environment where virtual and physical worlds coincide. As you enter the piece, 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 to a final climax. Each movement has its own elements, atmosphere and responsiveness. They are also all open to one’s own interpretation.
