About Squidsoup

Squidsoup is an international group of artists, researchers and designers working with digital and interactive media experiences.

Their work combines sound, physical space and virtual worlds to produce immersive and emotive headspaces where participants can take active control of their experience.

Squidsoup explore the modes and effects of interactivity, looking to make digital experiences where meaningful and creative interaction can occur.

They have shown at numerous festivals, seminars and galleries around the world, including Arts Electronica Festival (Linz Austria, 2010), SIGGRAPH (LA, 2001 and 2010), Glastonbury (2010), Kinetica Art Fair (London 2010), ISEA (Belfast, Northern Ireland 2009 and Nagoya, Japan, 2002), the V&A (Late at the V&A, London, October 2008) as well as several online exhibitions.

In 2010 they exhibited in the PACCAR Room at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Their digital sculpture Why? asked audiences to consider Shakespeare's continuing presence and influence in our lives today.

Visitors were prompted to send in answers to the question 'Why Shakespeare?' via mobile phone text message, or by entering comments into an ipad situated in the gallery, to create a swirling and constantly growing digital sculpture of thoughts and ideas.
