Harvestworks is pleased to premiere Abiogenesis, an interactive video projection by Jill Taffet that uses camera tracking to trigger the movement of animation and sound. Inspired by the theory of Abiogenesis, the process of life arising from non-living matter. Abstract animated avatars follow participants as they explore and bring biomorphic shapes to life. Each viewing of the work is unique dependent on the number of people interacting simultaneously.

Encore performance Saturday, March 5th @ 4:00 – 7:00 pm
Location: Harvestworks, #602, 596 Broadway, New York, NY 10012
