With a concept document lovingly compiled, this week sees us going into production. I found this quote somewhere as I was penning the directors statement and thought it was particularly evocative and appropriate to our project as it speaks about holistic immersion within digital spatiality.
“By changing space, by leaving the space of one’s usual sensibilities, one enters into communication with a space that is psychically innovating... For we do not change place, we change our nature.”
- Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space, 1964
Ephemera re-imagines the landscape of the human brain, immersing the participant in the fleeting membranes of our imagination and notions of play. Facilitated by 1st person fly-through mode, the project encourages participants to fluidly explore this landscpe through a series of neuro-passages and curio-chambers that aim to evoke rather than illustrate. Ephemera examines notions of perception and the interplay between self and world reminiscent of Alice’s fall down the Rabbit hole. Culminating notions of neurology and technology; Ephemera celebrates imagination and exploration within the cartesian space of the digital sphere.
