Part of Mutual Reality: Art on the Edge of Technology, organized by Julie Ganas at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Aquarium (Arizona Cycle) extends previous worlds into a new procedural dance.

This time, tentacles and feelers sprout from and alongside fruiting bodies on a single, large-scale canvas. Kinect sensors capture the audience's movement and gestures, entangling their digital avatars within a mass of procedurally generated, Unity built, free-floating limbs.
