#1073: “Liminal Lands” VR Fine Artist Jakob Kudsk Steensen’s Unique Approach to Environmental Storytelling

Liminal Lands is an environmental VR piece commissioned by Luma Arles to document and volumetrically capture different objects and organisms within “overlooked wetlands at the edge of the Mediterranean.” It’s a piece where the sound design adapts to your movement around the space, and there are also organic textures projected onto 3D objects that are also reactive to your movements. Artist Jakob Kudsk Steensen applies a fine arts aesthetic and production philosophy to his work, and the end result creates a sort of liminal experience that is hard to fully categorize — perhaps because part of Steensen’s intent is to blur those fixed categories into a more liminal space that spans both scale, but also space and time.
