"Within Reach" Immersive Interactive Art Installation
“Within Reach” is a playful video interactive art installation about reconnecting with nature by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger
“Within Reach” is an interactive art installation about transformation, reconnecting with the origin, nature and our relationship to it, created by filmmaker Laia Cabrera and visual artist Isabelle Duverger in collaboration with interactive designer Aniol Saurina Masó and composer Nana Simopoulos.
Conceived as a seamless projection mapping design with full gesture responsive interactivity, “Within Reach” invites the audience to actively enter the heart of the piece creating a story that unfolds across a series of immersive interactive scenarios. The installation is a sensory experience thought the elements, from the earth to the skies, from liquid shapes to seeds and visual metaphors, and the principle of change and transformation, where the line is blurred between the physical and the digital world, between the real and the imaginary.
We are far, minuscule, looking from above, but we are actors, actively morphing and shaping what we see. The sea is moving the trees, from the molecules to the exploration of nature and its fruits. “Within Reach” explores the soul of nature, it’s quietness and its power, fertility trough avatars being the fruits and seeds to the infinitesimal and the microscopic on a journey of landscapes and its enchanting beauty. The human presence is only visible at the beginning at gen end as a minuscule glimpse of looking at the skies, where coffee grains and bubbles are rain on our dreams.
The audience can affect change, create an avatar of themselves and discover ways to interact with the installation, embody the different storylines and share the experience with each other.
“Within Reach” premiered in Jersey City at the Art Wall Coolvines Powerhouse on August 11, 2020 and is currently in view until September 30, 2020.
It is a public art installation in a private space, and it is motion reactive, which means you can experience the installation and transform it without having to touch anything, and you can interact freely while following the social distancing guidelines. That way, we were making possible art in times of COVID-19.
Additionally, the video installation is visible from outside, so at night fall and all night, it is visible from the street as well as during the day until 10pm when people can come inside and interact with it.
