Submergence is a large, immersive, walkthrough experience that uses many thousands individual points of suspended light to create feelings of presence and movement within physical space. In this way the installation transforms space into a hybrid environment where virtual and physical worlds coincide.
As you enter the piece, you are walking into a space occupied by both real and virtual components, and you can affect both. In its entirety, an abstract narrative is formed with a gradual increase in tension, building to a final climax in which each movement has its own elements, atmosphere and responsiveness.
