Emergence is an open-world environment, expressing the primal desire to maintain your individual identity whilst being part of a crowd. As you immerse yourself in a crowd of thousands, shafts of light beckon you closer. As you touch the light, the environment – its atmosphere, its gravity and the choreography of the crowd – transform in powerful ways, continually challenging your perception. Showing 5000+ intelligent human behaviours, Emergence offers a powerful, unique experience of a crowd, that is only possible with the latest graphics technology.
Emergence forms part of Universal Everything’s solo show Fluid Bodies at Borusan Contemporary, Istanbul, in 2018-2019. An updated VR version of Emergence, presented in collaboration with WITHIN, will premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival as part of New Frontier, a curated collection of cutting-edge independent and experimental media works by artists and creators working across new mediums.
Universal Everything is a global collective of video artists, experience designers and future thinkers. We collaborate with pioneering brands and institutions to develop video artworks and immersive installations, to illuminate iconic architecture, and to produce major launch events. Our artworks are exhibited by museums and galleries worldwide, held in the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection and our VR explorations have premiered at Sundance Film Festival. A monograph on Universal Everything was published by Unit Editions in 2019.
