Working across disciplines of dance, mixed reality and sculpture design, Future Arts designed a large-scale, interactive installation, visible from the Lenora side of the Ivey on Boren building during Fall 2023. Multiple tools, such as augmented reality (AR), AI-driven motion capture, and mycelium were used to intertwine and expand creative interaction through this public art mural.

Over the past year, Future Arts has collaborated with Cornish’s students, faculty and the international digital arts community to create a mixed reality (XR) installation: CUT, CRUSH, DECAY, for the Ivey on Boren mural, adjacent to the Behnke Family Gallery. Artists, students, and community members will experience how multiple technologies, such as augmented reality (AR), AI-driven motion capture, and mycelium can be used to scale and expand their own creativity through this public art mural which emphasizes the importance of cross-disciplinary, cross-sector collaborations in the arts to build a more vibrant and inclusive future for Seattle and beyond.
