Inspired by the coordinated motion of animal groups, THE REALM combines visual art and computational design with behavioural science to create aesthetic and immersive collective encounters. Through Virtual Reality technologies, participants interact with imaginary biological creatures, whose individual and collective actions are driven by player interactions, interconnecting to create a dynamic co-evolving system, affected by bodily gestures, sounds and social signals.
