Submergence is a large, immersive walkthrough experience. It uses over 4,000 individual points of suspended light to create feelings of presence and movement within a physical space. The installation transforms space into a hybrid environment where both virtual and physical worlds coincide. As you enter the piece, you walk 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. Each movement has its own elements, atmosphere and responsiveness, all open to one’s own interpretation.
