IMMERSIO is an interactive and immersive experience plunging the participant in a living dream, in a world deriving from reality to abstraction, in a universe that questions the place of the body and its perception in a numeric space.

The participant enters alone in a black 3X3 cube. He is equipped with virtual reality goggles and an audio headset. For fifteen minutes, he experiences a “dive” in a drifting virtual universe.

This mechanism proves the opportunity to question the language and grammar of virtual reality. Immersio suggests paths for exploring this media, leaving behind narration, text, characters to concentrate on the dramaturgy, movement, interactivity, generative and random processes

“This is the most beautiful perception of sound I have ever experienced. The most elegant lure to transition from dream to reality, and to me, a truly unique gift of hidden beauty.”
Elli-Anna Peristeraki (Athens Digital Arts Festival Curator - Greece)

“This experience will be in my memory for a long time! At once dreamlike, mysterious and transcendant, this unique artwork is experienced as a head dive into the unconscious and the unspeakable. An awaken dream that mixes, in a surprisingly harmonious and fluid way, fragments of reality and pure abstractions.”
Félix Lajeunesse (Félix & Paul Studio - Canada)

“I adore the aesthetics, the technological poetry, the everyday life that rubs shoulders with the infinity of dreamt worlds. Colours, speeds, architectures, and the sentiment of living an initiatory path, a symbolic experience. I also loved the impression of taking part to an “experience” led by artists-researchers, guys who live for and through their passion. With undeniable care and attention for their “passengers”. More than an installation, a high-quality artistic work to be discovered immediately.”
Jacques-Yves Le Docte (Centre culturel Bruxelles Nord / Maison de la création director - Belgium)

Guide : be prepared to dive

Read me before diving...

Would you like to
programme Immersio
for an event?

Since it was created, Immersio has been played in a wide array of venues : multidisciplinary festivals, museums, contemporary art centre, cultural centres, numeric arts centres, art schools, meet ups, trade fairs...

The installation is devoid of texts or words, which makes it userfriendly everywhere.
It reaches a wide audience of all ages, which is merely curious or passionate about VR, and is suitable for children aged from 8+.

The number of participants than we can welcome should be discussed according to the type of event. In some conditions, we can host up to a hundred travellers per day.

We will gladly prepare an estimate upon request. Prices are equivalent to those applicable for a theatre show.

We can set up the installation in every type of venue. However, a wide and calm environment (allowing to install our 3X3 cube) is better suited for a smooth immersion.

Every time that we play Immersio in a new venue, we shoot 360° images to integrate the venue into Immersio’s virtual environment.

We set up our equipment on the day before the event: assembly of the cube, placement of the sensors, calibration and technical tests. It takes roughly an hour to dismantle the equipment after the show.

Come and try Immersio as a programmer. Contact us on immersio.contact@gmail.com
Demos take place in Brussels. It is possible to go to other locations.
