Sonic Cellumonials

Multimedia installation with immersive film and soundscape

Our bodies are alive with microscopic agents. More than half of the cells in your body are microbial, and nearly a tenth of your genes are viral. To these trillions of viruses, bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoa and more, your body is their habitat. Humankind's entanglement with the unimaginably immense world of microscopic entities is complex, as these ubiquitous, unseen networks are both symbiotic and parasitic, they’re mutating and unpredictable. In the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak, how do we relate to ourselves as hosting universes of constantly evolving, microbial protopias? 

Sonic Cellumonials is an immersive audio-visual experience combining electronic ambient synthscapes, guided meditation, 3D visuals and tactile interactions. In a meditative, physical-digital ceremony, you are invited to delve into your internal microcosm to explore the transformative potential of understanding the body as an ecosystem of constant lifecycles. Rooted in the ceremonial experience, the encounter invites an expansive journey through the body's cellular landscapes, drawing inspiration from rhythms and processes of microscopic movements within the human body.
