Polyfauna Experience !

My Current Jam

Polyfauna

This new app for iOS and Android is an experimental collaboration with Radiohead, Stanley Donwood and Nigel Godrich.

Here’s how Thom Yorke, the radiohead leader, describes it in an interview :

Your screen is the window into an evolving world.
Move around to look around.
You can follow the red dot.
You can wear headphones.

Universal Everything were commissioned to develop Polyfauna as a free, exploratory audiovisual app, born out of Radiohead’s The King of Limbs sessions and using imagery and sounds from the song Bloom.

Set to a lunar calendar, the mysterious, immersive app is brought to life through touch and offers a unique and different set of experiences and encounters each time it’s used. A pioneering new collision between digital art and the world of apps, the collaboration sees the creation of abstracted, expanded and exploded versions of audio and visual work by the band.

Inviting the user into an immersive, expansive world of primitive life, weather, sunsets, mountains and forests, Polyfauna comes from an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious. It is inspired by everything from the atmospheric landscape paintings of JW Turner and Peter Doig, to the computational life forms of Karl Sims.
