We Live in an Ocean of Air, 2018

SALON, in collaboration with Marshmallow Laser Feast, is delighted to host the world premiere of We Live in an Ocean of Air, a multisensory virtual reality installation that brings together art, science and technology. 

The work explores the invisible but fundamental connection between human and natural world through breath, allowing the viewer to interact with an entire ecosystem around a giant sequoia tree – the largest living individual organism on the planet.

 

Fusing architectural tools, contemporary imaging techniques and performance with tactile forms, Marshmallow Laser Feast sculpt spaces that lay dormant until animated by curiosity and exploration.

Incorporating breath sensors, heart rate monitors, binaural sound, scent dispersal systems and wind machines, We Live in an Ocean of Air extends the boundaries of experience design, offering an unparalleled level of immersion.

 

The breath and heart sensors track real-time breathing, encouraging the viewer to reflect upon their dependence on and responsibility to other organisms. Oxygen and carbon dioxide are made visible; with each exhale of your breath – the very essence of life – is seen before you, while all around, nature explodes in blazes of breathtaking light and colour.

Created in 2018, We Live in an Ocean of Air, which lasts 20 minutes in total, builds on earlier works by Marshmallow Laser Feast, including Treehugger, winner of the Storyscapes Award at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, and In the Eyes of the Animal, which was shown at the 2015 Sundance Festival and received a Wired Audi Innovation Awards in Experience Design.
