Virtual Reality Art by Kevin Mack
Anandala is a virtual, abstract art installation unconstrained by the limits of reality. Visitors explore through personal flight a vast three-dimensional labyrinth of evolving shapes and colors populated with intelligent artificial-life called Blorts. Blorts are living artworks that are expressive, social, curious, and creative. They are aware of themselves and others, and their behavior is self-determined and unpredictable. The shapeshifting creatures express themselves and interact with visitors and each other through movement, changing color textures, and their own musical language. Each visit is unique because of the emergent, ever-changing nature of the world and it's inhabitants. Anandala invites visitors to interact and connect with a variety of curious, friendly lifeforms and explore their natural habitat.
Anandala is an Official Selection of the 78th Venice International Film Festival of La Biennale di Venezia
