Interactive Work at Berlin’s CTM Festival #ArtTuesday
What could possibly be happening except for a virtual music festival that incorporates interactive and guided meditation? Berlin’s CTM festival has transformed for the time of coronavirus, and that has led to some wonderful innovation. One piece, a collaboration between Peaches and digital art duo Pvsskyrew, Fill The Whole would never have existed if it weren’t for the socially distanced turn. Here’s more on The Verge:
Once Fill The Whole loads in your browser, you’re asked to select a raver-esque avatar before booting into the first globular pink world. It’s got a chunky organic look, full of bulbous shapes which bend at impossible angles. Am I traversing Peaches’ brain — a place soundtracked exclusively by her own music and voice? Who can say, but it’s rendered in perfect high definition and runs at an eye-massaging 60 frames per second. I accelerate through the seemingly cranial landscape, collecting cherries that pop into tiny fluttering hearts; occasionally I hit Q on my keyboard to trigger the game’s extremely well-done slo-mo effect.
