We Live in an Ocean of Air

June 28 - October 2

ArtScience Museum website

A virtual reality (VR) journey through the ecosystem of a vast forest – the Sequoia National Park in California.

A multi-sensory immersive installation by London-based immersive art collective Marshmallow Laser Feast unveils – in stunning virtual reality – the invisible yet symbiotic connections that bind the animal, plant, human and natural worlds into one.

The 12-minute experience explores the inner life of the tallest tree on earth – the giant sequoia, illuminating the relationship between the natural world and humans. A VR headset, breath sensors, heart-rate monitors, and a body-tracking device working with binaural sound, scent-dispersal systems, and wind machines enhance the visitor’s environment.

Blurring the boundaries of installation, live performance, and virtual reality, this work urges us to understand the challenges our planet faces in the twenty-first century and our responsibility to the organisms we share it with.

Our dependence on the natural world is absolute from the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe. London-based immersive art collective Marshmallow Laser Feast focuses on these issues – the protection and regeneration of ecosystems that are fundamental to our collective futures.
