Morphogenesis is the biological process that causes an organism to develop its shape. As a virtual-reality piece, Morphogenesis consists of continuous transformation of fundamental geometrical patterns and uses them as the building blocks of immersive spaces. It embodies the systems that produce the complexity we encounter in the living world.

Exploring the idea of geomorphology, mathematics and understanding the world, Morphogenesis requires audience to be sentient, not just receivers. It invites the viewer to a poetic and sensational world, where space becomes infinity, the primal sense of the immaterial world is experienced and the process of creation is reevaluated.

Morphogenesis is part of the Ars Electronica Animation Festival, that screens a selection of the most outstanding animated works honored by the Prix Ars Electronica jury in recognition of their substantive and stylistic quality. This lineup impressively gets across how the genre itself has flourished of late and the extent to which it now pervades our everyday life.
