Antrum is a mesmerising interactive installation using bright, laser-like computer graphics which were based on mathematical functions and designed by Tatiana Plakhova. The audience is welcomed into a membrane “grotto” and encouraged to interact with the artwork, touching the membrane and consequently twisting, pulling and changing the graphics themselves. The artist says that the moving graphics resemble strange creatures, and the installation really does seem almost alive.
Spatio-Graphical Interactive Installation
The installation looks like a grotto of the membrane, the surface of which is inhabited by strange creatures. It’s complex structure causes association with living creatures, space objects and architectural constructions.
In this frontier word pure mathematical abstractions are mixed with natural shapes, resulting in formation of new entities. Viewers can push the membrane and try to contact with them.
