Finally Found: Immersiva

Last week I had written about seeing Bryn Oh’s Anna’s Many Murders and I had made a promise to myself to check out her previous installation, Immersiva.  I was able to go earlier this week, quite by coincidence when Xan tp’d me there on one of our exploration evenings.  I didn’t do too much editing on the pictures because I wanted to show the pieces as the artist created them.

As you climb through this first tower, the first story of Daughter of Gears is revealed.  I don’t want to show too much because its really something you should experience for yourself.  Be careful as you climb, this is a health-damage sim and falling while making the ascent could be hazardous.

After decending from the top of the tower, you can move on to the next area and follow the story of The Rabbicorn.  Each vignette has a portion of the tale which you get in a notecard by clicking on a paper somewhere in the scene.  Also there is a silver teleport which will take you to the next area.

From tesla coils
And a music box
Parts of a gramaphone
And fur from a fox

If you follow all the way through, you’ll see how the two stories correlate.  I was actually able to pick up on the themes and follow along, which is unusual for me.  I also now see how the pieces in this first installation relate to many in the second and I wish I had experienced Immersiva first.  I’ll definitely go back through Anna’s Many Murders again to enjoy it as it should be.

My journey through Immersiva left me wishing this was a real installation in a gallery so I could take my son through it as well.
