"In Bloom" by Estella Tse

In Bloom’: An Augmented Reality Exhibition by Visiting Fellow, Estella Tse Fusion Arts, 95 Gloucester Green, 5-18 June 2023

Am I the demons inside of my head?

Is that critic me?

'In Bloom' is a story of redemption, overcoming the darkest days in one's life to find light again.

In collaboration with Oxford University, virtual + augmented reality artist Estella Tse shares her story of overcoming Complex PTSD and debilitating Depression through her immersive art. You'll find moments, snapshots, and explorations from four of Estella's phases: The Darkest Days, Recovering and Doing the Work, Rebuild, and Thrive. Each piece is a seedling that shapes and colours the larger ecosystem of Estella's life and growth. You'll also find integrated works by Oxford researchers.

We invite you to join us on a journey from a place of darkness to light.

Through it you will discover nature’s, and your own, amazing ability for renewal.

This exhibition uses augmented reality (AR) which is an interactive experience that combines the real world and computer-generated content. Come and test out the latest technologies in motion capture and AR. Your exhibition guides will introduce you to the experience and the technology.

‘In Bloom’ has been created by leading AR/VR artist Estella Tse in partnership with Oxford University, it uses tech to tell a story of overcoming internal darkness (Depression, PTSD, creative imposter syndrome) through the healing power of art. Symbolic and metaphorical elements of plant and other life forms are woven through the visitor journey creating a technologically enhanced nature-scape through which to explore the mind and the imagination. Estella has worked with Oxford researchers to promote a mutual deepening of understanding and practice.

This exhibition has been created in partnership with TORCH, The Humanities Cultural Programme, and The Institute for Ethics in AI. Also, this exhibition forms part of the wider Artful Intelligence Season, and support of Leia Inc and Vicon.
