Experience Entangled; the immersive experience by OBLSK Interactive. Explore haunting and beautiful environments as you adventure through the tableau. Through motion graphics, projection mapping, and Lenticular technology used in the sculptural design, Entangled will enthrall audiences with a fantastic dreamscape of optical illusion, storytelling, and unforgettable imagery.
This project consists of a sculptural installation designed to create an immersive environment in which simple three dimensional shapes (square columns) are used
as a projection surface. The piece becomes a location for viewers to have virtual experiences. The possible environments are endless. They could be, for example, a dark enchanted forest, an alien landscape, or a more playful haunted house.
The structured consists of sixteen 18″ by 18” square large columns that are 10′ tall. The participant can explore the installation by walking through and in between the columns. Each column has projection mapped video on all four sides so what the participant sees and experience is changed based on their position and the direction they face.
OBLSK has been busy over the last months creating media for national and international companies. We are movin’ and groovin’ makin’ art for the masses.
We just recently worked with HMS Host in the state of Delaware, working on a series of time lapse training videos. We were lucky enough to work with Davinia Roberts and Paul Cook with ZenGenius.
OBLSK also just finished up an animation for the Off Broadway production MADE IN CHINA by Wakka Wakka Productions. MADE IN CHINA is A darkly comedic puppet musical inspired by true events, MADE IN CHINA is a fantastical exploration of human rights, consumerism and American-Chinese relations as told through the unlikely love story between an odd middle-aged American woman and her Chinese ex-pat neighbor.

Pulse is a modular 3d sculpture created by OBLSK, with support from Capital University Audio Engineering Students and Greater Columbus Arts Council, that captures the pulse of Columbus, Ohio. Patterns found in the city’s sounds and textures are translated into light and color, which play on the surfaces of 3 floating triangular pyramids. Through RGB LEDs and video projection, Pulse comes alive as a glowing prism of energy, revealing the rhythm of the heart of Columbus.
Pulse was presented at the Columbus Arts Festival Patron Party on June 10th and was a huge success adding color and ambience to the festivities as well as innovation and curiosity.
Special Thanks to the Greater Columbus Arts Council, ZenGenius, the Cultural Arts Center, and CoverMyMeds.
