Liminal Lands

Liminal Lands is an immersive installation realized at the museum Luma Arles in France, created from the wetlands of the Camargue. Through VR, the audience begin a 4-player journey as humans in the wetland reservation, and morph into elemental energies as they travel across the forgotten landscape. Fresh water and salt are in constant flux as seasons change. Visitors adapt to insect scale, surrounded by towering ancient wood covered in salt, and spatialized sounds respond to the visitors’ movements. Liminal Lands highlights the unseen energies in the natural world, and is part of Erratic Animist Studio's exploration of methods to make physically immersive exhibitions digitally available.
