Forest Of Us is a new work created by Es Devlin at SUPERBLUE Miami, part of inaugural exhibition ‘Every Wall is a Door’ featuring major new works by teamLAB and James Turrell.
Forest of Us takes as its starting point the striking visual symmetries between the structures within us that allow us to breathe and the structures around us that make breathing possible: the bronchial trees that exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide within our lungs and the trees which exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen within our environment.
Polyphonia created a soundtrack that encouraged the audience to explore the maze, inspiring the work to resonate with the audience. The audio system design featured over 75 speakers across the installation, including a surround sound film room, concealed speakers across the maze split into contrasting zones and floor based transducers creating sub-sonic sensory pockets.
