Originally scheduled as part of our 2020 Live Ideas Festival, we are elated to share that The Guild of Future Architects‘ project, Traveling the Interstitium with Octavia Butler.
The human interstitium is the fluid space between cell walls and organs. In this mesmerizing interactive WebXR experience, the interstitium is the liminal space where reality shifts, challenging us to harness the power of our radical imagination. Dip into this primordial pool and find innovative artists working at the intersection of art, film, science, music, and technology. They are divining inspiration from Octavia Butler and creating portals on your desktop to alternate dimensions—making the invisible visible.

This project is available on-demand throughout the Festival with purchase of a pass. The day and time listed indicates when the on-demand window begins.
