Tangles and Blooms

Tangles and Blooms is a performed animation created specifically for the dome at the Societé Des Arts Technologiques (SAT) in Montreal. The work was part of the SIGCHI art exhibition, connexions, curated by Thecla Schiphorst, Andruid Kerne, Luc Courchesne, and Kristina Andersen.

Based on the poem ode to the gillyflower by Pablo Naruda, the work consists of a base animation and a base soundtrack which are enhanced with live procedural sounds and graphics triggered by two performers in VR headsets in the dome.

This research was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
