1-8th December | TxOom| Hippodrome, Great Yarmouth
tx0om (Textures in Bloom) is a responsive PlaySpace, where wearable architecture and evolving media worlds blend, engendering a rich and multilayered experience. Players are sensed by the PlaySpace using motion sensors and vision tracking systems incorporated into the space. Gradually the social interaction between the participants, and the responsive sound and visuals projected throughout the PlaySpace, change and evolve as they begin to play together. tx0om environments are designed as public experiments, for testing and research in the field of biomimetics, visualisation and sonification of human behaviour and human-computer interaction in mixed realities. An important part of the site-specific environment has been developed through interaction with local community groups, as well as national and international artists and technologists. Public Event.
