A Crescendo of Ecstasy

Mary Sibande x Eden Labs x TMRW

About_

 

A Crescendo of Ecstasy, combines familiar sculptural forms with a Virtual Reality component that brings the work dramatically to life. Based on Mary Sibande’s use of alter-ego figures made in her own likeness, the piece creates an immersive environment for the viewer that can be accessed both physically and virtually, foregrounding the complex relationship between reality, fantasy and artistic imagination.

 

The project extends Sibande’s preoccupation with these three elements and bridges her use of sculptural technology with the language of virtual reality.

We thought it would be interesting if people were able to step into my head, in a way, and to experience a virtual or fantastical world that was really an amplified version of the work. In my work, the figures are always in the middle of some action, and there’s already this suggestion of animation."

3D Printing: the 

future of sculpture

Eden Labs specialises in 3D printing and enabled us to create custom VR headsets made from scans of Mary's face. This enabled viewers to literally and figuratively step inside Mary’s head.

Creating the digital twin

In order to create digital copies of real world the sculptural elements, Eden Labs employed various 3D scanning and photogrammetry techniques  to capture pieces in their exact likeness for the VR experience and accompanying elements.
