Premiere of a new audiovisual experience
'Transcendence' is a tactile audio-visual installation by Max Cooper, Salvador Breed, Martin Krzywinski and AND&.
Combining technology, ancient architecture, and bespoke audiovisual design it seeks to induce a personalized state of going beyond; it aims to transport you away from everyday experience to a place of reflection and discovery.
The encounter is communicated with a deep priming question, and a bed of sound which infuses your entire body via a haptic audio delivery system designed and built for the installation, alongside surround audiovisual components mapping transcendental numbers to the beautiful canopy of St Michael’s Church Leuven.
It was designed in response to the and& conference program of artistic challenges to modern dilemmas, in this case, looking inward to our own thought processes for a personalized experience unique to each participant.
Free audiovisual experience.
Open from Tuesday to Sunday.
Location: Sint-Michiels Vredekerk
