The Realm is an interactive immersive experience inspired by the wonders of collective natural phenomena.


Co-created by users, The Realm engages audiences through generative art and immersive technologies. Each ‘visitor’ observes, interacts and affects collective motion from within a dynamic virtual environment, where shape-shifting Artificial Biological Entities (ABEs) reside. Players feel their way intuitively, gradually evolving a language of social interaction through experimentation in gesture, sound and social cues. Individual interactions affect collective actions, enabling the player to orchestrate a swarm, drive a herd or attract a colony. Starting from the same base models and algorithms, behavioural patterns emerge uniquely through a feedback loop of complex interactions between agents and players, generated in real time.
