We build living installations in pixels and light.
Since 2008 we have been developing a series of interactive creatures based on imagined future evolutions. In dark spaces audiences engage with fantastical organisms combining elements of the human and the animal.
We are currently working on Microworld; an experiment in creating digital ecosystems of artworks that react to each other, to the space and to the audience. Microworlds bring lots of interactive art by us and other artists into a single space to see what happens. The audience is then thrown into the middle. A Microworld should be an ever changing immersive environment, mutating in front of your eyes.
This booklet explains the ideas behind Microworld and details on getting involved.
