Wormholes


April 14-16, 2023

SOCH & SEC Undergraduate Lounge
in collaboration with hAR/VRd


Wormholes is a collection of interactive, audio-visual installations distributed across campus that examine themes of transience, connection, and serendipity. More specifically, these installations will be sensor-projector modules that open up wormholes — bi-directional camera feeds — between people in different places. Located in public areas like hallways and lobbies, these portals activate in pairs — when two people are sensed by installations in different locations, the projector displays a wormhole on the wall, through which both sides can see and interact with each other. And just like that, people and places once separated by distance now become connected across spacetime. The opening of these wormholes open a new dimension of possibilities for people to interact with each other — they could spontaneously run into acquaintances on the other side of campus, make friends with strangers from completely different departments, jointly share confusion, ponder over, or marvel at the absurdity of these space-defiant connections. Together as a community, we can explore the implications of this space-defiant network, critically examining traditional frameworks and the invisible constraints and compartmentalization of our relationships. Ultimately, Wormholes aims to construct an entirely new framework for communication and interaction beyond spacial boundaries, forming a network of spontaneous connections across campus.
