🥽 Emergence VR
Emergence is an open-world VR environment, expressing the primal desire to maintain your individual identity whilst being part of a crowd.
As you immerse yourself in a crowd of thousands, shafts of light beckon you closer. As you touch the light, the environment – its atmosphere, its gravity and the choreography of the crowd – transform in powerful ways, continually challenging your perception.
Showing 5000+ intelligent human behaviours, Emergence offers a powerful, unique experience of a crowd, that is only possible with the latest graphics technology.
Emergence formed part of Universal Everything’s solo show Fluid Bodies at Borusan Contemporary, Istanbul, in 2018-2019.
An updated VR app version of Emergence, presented in collaboration with WITHIN, premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival as part of New Frontier, a curated collection of cutting-edge independent and experimental media works by artists and creators working across new mediums.
