A program of short stories that would never have existed without the internet.
An immersive and sensory portrait of Mexico City, in collaboration with 12 Mexican artists from various disciplines.
Chameleon presents a unique, sensory portrait of Mexico City. It’s the result of an experimental collaboration to create new artistic concepts and bring a more diverse range of voices to the emerging field of immersive storytelling. The mixed reality experience is created by 12 Mexican artists – ranging from photographers, programmers and architects to visual artists, sound designers and fashion designers – in collaboration with the British artist collective Marshmallow Laser Feast. When viewers enter the virtual space of the installation, they discover four very different individuals, each of them representing a different aspect of Mexico City. Viewers can explore landscapes and textures by walking around inside the virtual space, peeling off different layers and revealing new sounds, images and stories from present-day Mexico City.
