I-Space (Erasmus MC), Rotterdam - invited
I have been asked by V2_ to create an artwork for the opening of the new I-Space (Bioinformatics Department) at Erasmus MC in Rotterdam. The I-Space is an immersive virtual reality environment like CAVE, which will serve as a facility for three-dimensional, interactive projections for genomics and proteomics data and clinical imaging techniques. 'GATC/life' is an immersive experience inside unities of life. The liquid multi-colored breathing membrane (the 'inside') contains flocks of cells and smallest particles/molecules having disordered human-like noisy behaviors. Our presence and actions can influence their configurations and growth within the space and around/near us. This work explores our perception in a condition of extended body dimensions and lack of control. In collaboration with the sound artist Edwin van der Heide.
