Dolleen Tisawii’ashii Manning and Mary Bunch, Emerging from the Water: Asigi’idiwag (Gather), 2022; VR still (Lily leaf bud, plankton, protozoa, and Saccorhytus. Canoe by Mariel Belanger).

Emerging from the Water: Asigi’idiwag (Gather) is a VR experience and projection dome installation created by Dolleen Tisawii’ashii Manning and Mary Bunch. Based on Manning’s Anishinaabe philosophy, Emerging from the Water is a field of relations, a gathering of mnidoo, a swarm of stories. In this microscopic universe, shorelines vibrate with other-than-human potencies. From undulating broken shimmers, song, and rhythm, beings emerge and cross over to an electrifying embrace. In this immersive storyworld, spherical microscopic water organisms are suspended in a space-like waterworld, with planetary portals to stories by Lisa Myers, Mariel Belanger, Hodari Newtown, and Lydia Johnson.

Programmed by Peripheral Visions Lab as part of The Year of the Arts at the AMPD
