Chthuluscene

Asexual reproduction meets weather pattern. Gesture recognition meets flooded shorelines. Bring your phone. Bring a friend. Pair with a stranger. Change the world. Over and over and over again.

This interactive visualization invites visitors to use their mobile phones to pair up with a random partner in order to produce another entity. These entities begin populating the slowly revolving world projected on the 60 ft. wall in front of them. Meanwhile, sound artist Egyptrixx creates an ambient soundtrack.
