New Nature by Marpi (Washington, DC)

Step into a colorful digital menagerie of nature-inspired creatures and plant life that will react in real-time to your gestures and actions.

New Nature by Marpi, the latest interactive art exhibition at ARTECHOUSE, explores our organic world through an immersive audio-visual experience, incorporating computer learning (A.I.), responsive technology, and music. Driven by your sensory movements, the multi-user artworks create real-time generative patterns, forming a virtual terrarium of insects, plants, creatures, landscapes, planets, and more, all in different shapes and sizes. These ever-evolving worlds morph and melt over time, reacting to people throughout the space. Marpi’s work harnesses the power of cutting-edge digital tools to offer new ways of interpreting the ecosystems and organic processes all around us.
