The Machinery Generating Reality

Audio file crafted for the immersive installation, an Experimental Space for Reconnection with the Natural World, v1.

Once inside Experimental Space guests were free to explore. From the front entrance, they had a sightline through the entire first floor of the installation. Most audible was the audio file, The Machinery Generating Reality, although sonic frequencies throughout other parts of the house could be heard, creating a multi-layered soundscape. Dried oak leaves (collected the previous autumn from the guardian street trees) and sand covered the floor, crunching and texturing footsteps as guests moved forward.

From the bottom of the stairs through a veil of transparent fabric, guests could see the video projection Portal Door Shroom Slug mapped into a door panel at the top of the stairs. The soundtrack for Portal Door Shroom Slug was an edited and more distorted version of The Machinery Generating Reality.
