(  Bloom: Open Space is a new augmented reality installation by musician and artist Brian Eno and his frequent collaborator Peter Chilvers. The audience wears a Microsoft HoloLens augmented reality (AR) headsets. They pinch in the air to creating “blooms” – AR bubbles that burst into being with a musical note before floating up towards the ceiling, growing larger and eventually popping.
The “composers” of these blooms can see them appear in front of them in 3D, floating in the air. External observers can see 2D representations of the blooms on the screens. Each one contributes a note to the overall sound in the hall, which is a gentle, meditative electronic track underpinned with ambient sounds such as cricket-like chirping.
