The essence of the project is the dependencies between the biological habitat, virtual reality and the light habitat. The project comprises three parts: 1. “This view has potential” – inhabited by a colony of earthworms; 2. “Vanity” – a fully generative light habitat, and 3. “Visual phenotype”, inspired by an electric chair on which the viewer experiences a fully generative VR world.
The virtual world is equipped with digital sound synthesisers, generating a sonic space on the basis of signals from sensors placed in the first section. The second section is an attempt to delineate a hypothetical habitat without identifying its future coloniser. We observe it in fully generative lighting changes that are also dependent on signals sent from the first section. The project was created as a collective of Elvin Flamingo + Infer.
