Meri Ekola: Untamed

The artwork brings light art to an immersive virtual environment.

Untamed is an immersive journey through VR technology towards the blurred contours of light. It is a movement of darkness, an oscillation between the abstract and the recognisable, an evocation of presence and empathy. Its constant movement draws in, captivates, and constantly asks what there is to see. The work is born out of a desire to explore the material nature of light and its ability to reflect our inner visions.
