For this year’s Tribeca Immersive programme at the 2022 Tribeca Festival, which will be presented at the historic site of 120 Broadway, New York, USA from 9-19 June, London-based art collective MARSHMALLOW LASER FEAST the immersive production company Atlas V and US producing company PRESSMAN FILM present the world premiere of an extraordinary new collaborative virtual reality experience, entitled EVOLVER: a free-roaming, immersive journey through the breathing body. EVOLVER is presented by Bia-Echo Foundation’s Nicole Shanahan, who has led the collaborative initiative to incorporate medical data from The Buck Institute for Research on Aging, and their cutting edge research being done on Female Reproductive health, with the creative team of Marshmallow Laser Feast and key scientific collaborator Fraunhofer MEVIS, whose data sets and bodily scanning techniques have informed every aspect of the project, narrated by Cate Blanchett.
It is such a great pleasure to develop these ventures for Fraunhofer MEVIS and to work with outstanding artists like Barney Steel from MARSHMALLOW LASER FEAST and STEM scientists like Matthias Guenther and may others. What drives me is to use digital technologies to promote a more profound understanding of life and the physical world, for a deeper re-connection to analog life - not to create a digital twin of reality but an enhanced view with a digital magnifying lens.
