Time of Doubles

Immersive projection, volumetric sensing, granular synthesis, artificial ecosystem
Time of Doubles is an immersive interactive art installation. It invites visitors to experience mirror existences of themselves taking on new roles in a virtual ecosystem. Within a uniquely created computational world, visitors’ doubles become continuous changing sources of energy and kinetic disturbance. At the base of a food chain of energy circulation and preservation, visitor’s doubles emanate myriad bright fluid particles, sources to be eaten by the smaller virtual organisms. Larger organisms hunt the smaller ones, leaving physical residues and films behind as they undulate through this multimodal world.
