The Nimbes, by Joanie Lemercier and James Ginzbur
New technologies are so fantastic that they push our imagination beyond what's already possible. While immersing us into a virgin space-time, The Nimbes, a fifteen-minutes 360º audio-visual experience, returns to the cosmogony exploring centuries later the ancient Greek mythological conceptions of the creation of the world. Composed by French visual artist Joanie Lemercier and Bristol-based sound artist James Ginzburg, the immersive piece places the spectator at the centre of this universe; lying down on a black floor, here he is in front of a marvellous yet dystopic Nimbes. Nature is menacing and monochrome while a battle between darkness and light wages on. And into this full experience, spectators can only feel the solitary nature of perception.
