Interactive installation, 2016-18

“Ultiverse” is a highly emotive interactive environment. Ultrasonic sensors use audience movement to influence a combination of moving refracted light, vibrations and sound. In 2018 “Ultiverse” culminated in a live performance in the interactive installation exploring emotions around migration experiences. Developed with 7 artists and 21 community contributors, this cross disciplinary collaboration resulted in an incredibly moving immersive experience for over 2000 participants at Light Night Leeds 2018.
