'EVOLVER' at 2022 Tribeca Festival

For this year’s Tribeca Immersive programme at the 2022 Tribeca Festival, which will be presented at the historic site of 120 Broadway, New York, USA from 9-19 June, London-based art collective Marshmallow Laser Feast, the immersive production company Atlas V and US producing company Pressman Film present the world premiere of an extraordinary new collaborative virtual reality experience, entitled EVOLVER: a free-roaming, immersive journey through the breathing body; narrated by Cate Blanchett.

EVOLVER from Marshmallow Laser Feast is a collective virtual reality experience which drops audiences deep inside the landscape of the body, following the flow of oxygen through our branching ecosystem, to a single ‘breathing’ cell. Through this transcendental narrative, it becomes clear that breath not only sparks life, but also connects us to the natural world through the cycle of respiration. The datasets provided by Fraunhofer MEVIS were vital to the development of EVOLVER, where they provided a range of custom assets, including full-body MRI scans and MRA exams of a volunteer, alongside blood flow data and consulting for CT scan assets, to form the project's core human body. In addition to the Institute’s primary mission – developing real-world software solutions for severe diseases' image-and-data-supported early detection, diagnosis, and therapies – Fraunhofer MEVIS scientists are committed to raising awareness about how digital transformation influences health care. They develop experiential SciArt projects to stimulate critical dialog, reach new audiences, and foster a diverse future R&D landscape and ownership of new technologies.
