Taking the genre of interactive installations, the Submergence Project By Squidsoup immerses visitors into a hypnotic reality.

Digital arts collective group Squidsoup consists of artists Anthony Rowe, Gaz Bushell, Chris Bennewith and Liam Birtles. These talented professionals work to create installations that stimulate all of the senses. The Submergence project is the culmination of the group's research on "interactive media experiences that occupy physical space" over the span of five years.

The result is a dreamlike mixed reality experience that allows visitors to get completely lost in the a physical-virtual world. Screen pixels are represented by 8,064 points of light that are responsive in the installation's walk through space. The Submergence Project By Squidsoup not only makes for a remarkable interactive experience, but is also a statement on the increasingly more seamless marriage of the digital and physical worlds.
