'Mutator VR' is an interactive virtual reality art installation on HTC Vive which places the viewer in a 3D surreal world of moving 'Mutoids' with which they interact using their two hand controllers. The 'serpentine' Mutoids are controlled by invisible force fields which respond to viewer's smallest body movements, enabling the viewer to play and experiment in this virtual organic space. Inspired by DNA, cellular forms and science fiction, this VR installation has been shown in Venice, Linz, St. Petersburg and Dusseldorf and Norwich. This work builds on the early pioneering computer art by Latham and Todd in the late 1980s and early 1990s at IBM, now in collaboration with Lance Putnam and Peter Todd.
