Kevin Mack: Anandala

Nave 17. Matadero

Anandala by Kevin Mack, pioneer of immersive art, computer graphics and visual effects, is a virtual and abstract art world unconstrained by the limits of reality.

With the ability to fly, visitors explore a vast three-dimensional labyrinth of evolving shapes and colors populated with intelligent artificial-life called Blorts. Blorts are actual living beings that are expressive, social, curious, and creative. These living artworks are aware of themselves and others, and their behavior is self-determined and unpredictable. The shapeshifting creatures express themselves and interact with visitors and each other through movement, changing color textures, and their own musical language.

Each visit is unique because of the emergent, ever-changing nature of the world and it’s inhabitants. Anandala invites visitors to interact and connect with a variety of curious, friendly lifeforms and explore their natural habitat.
