We Are Sphere
Interactive game and sound performance piece created by Limited Hangout and Michael Baker
We Are Sphere is an interactive installation and performance designed in collaboration with new media art duo Limited Hangout (Kyle Evans + Lucas Dimick) and video game designer Michael Baker. The piece intertwines multi-channel sound, live animation, and an exploratory sci-fi video game into a submersive experience. Guided by abstract communications from a being of higher-level intelligence, visitors navigate various virtual landscapes and sonic atmospheres in search of answers to its existence. The piece incoperates a performative aspect to guide participants through the game. The performance utilizes a 9 channel audio system, live animation, and 4 sonified inkjet printers.
This piece premiered as part for the Synesthispace sound art series at First Street Studio in Austin, TX.
