Primal Nest (Sanglim Han) VR – AGWT selection, Isabelle Arvers

Primal nest is an experimental 3d video game where the viewer is invited to zoom into the frame and navigate the virtual landscape through an inter-vaginal perspective. The interior is a female womb, humanity’s primal nest, imagined and constructed with disembodied legs, arms, hands, fingers, and toes. The virtual reality scene contains a light source, water, and sound. Shadows, reflections and echo are rendered in real-time as the viewer explores.

Sanglim Han is an interdisciplinary artist who focuses on the dialogue in, on, and around bodies. She explores our (digital) bodies through installations including video, 3D animation, virtual reality and real-time media performance.
