The extraordinary landscape of the Camargue, in the South of France, provides the backdrop to the imaginative journey taken in Liminal Lands. It was commissioned by Luma Foundation, a new museum in Arles, and conceived by Steensen during an extensive residency there. He re-envisions complex shapes and forms as a transitional zone where fundamental energies of sun, wind, water and bacteria determine the delicate balance of life in one of the most archaic landscapes in Western Europe. Every sound, form and texture in these virtual environments has been digitized with 3D scanners and audio recordings, then crafted into the artist’s distinctive visual style. As both sound and vision respond to audience member’s motion, technology becomes a sensory tool for a ritualistic environmental experience.
