Here you can see some of the photographs from the video as a preview:


LEIKHĒN is an audiovisual installation, created for the Immersive Lab (IL) at ICST (Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology) Zurich which consists of a panoramic video made by four video screens arranged in a cylindrical form, in addition to a full-scale interaction surface, which tracks the visitors’ touch from behind the screens using infrared cameras.

The installation was inspired by the composite plant of lichen (from Greek: leikhēn), which is the result of a hybrid partnership between a fungus and an alga. The installation is therefore a reflection upon the interaction and mutualistic relationship between two organisms, and how this union impacts on their behaviours inside a created audiovisual immersive space.
