Submergence by Squid Soup
Submergence is the key work in a group of large, immersive, walkthrough experiences that consist primarily of a large walkthrough array of individually controllable LEDs. The pieces use many thousands of individual points of suspended light to create feelings of presence and movement within physical space. The group of works is known collectively as ‘Ocean of Light’.
Ocean of Light installations transform physical space into a hybrid environment where virtual and physical worlds coincide. As visitors enter the piece, they are walking into a space occupied by both real and virtual components, and they can affect both.
