"Infinite Scroll" by i8i opened on September 17th and 18th 2021 and was on view until October 17th.
i8i is an international multidisciplinary art collective that specializes in performance and sculptural installation.
Formed over Instagram during COVID-19, i8i’s upcoming event at Trauma Bar und Kino, INFINITE SCROLL, represents their European debut as a group.
The exhibition consisted of large sculptural installations and performances that told i8i’s philosophy while exploring themes of spirituality, technology, and digital identity.
Guests were guided through a labyrinth of sculptures and characters that reveal the story of Infinite Scroll.
Using memes and music videos as storytelling techniques, i8i has set the stage with extensive lore - to reveal the context for their first physical encounter - in which they will attempt to summon spirits from other dimensions through an internet portal.
I created an animated short film "Infinite Scroll" for the eponymous exhibition. The video featured representations of different i8i members, traveling through their realms as a ride on track.
The world included 3D scans of i8i members and locations, video planes from the i8i Utah summit trip, and a virtual version of TRAUMABAR.
This world was created with Unreal Engine, and the animation was projected on three walls in a 270-degree view, with an interactive rotating camera.
