art, research, play and immersive experience


Much of squidsoup’s work evolves from ongoing research, primarily into interaction design, sound and visualisation techniques.  Recent research support from AHO (Oslo School of Architecture and Design) and the Technology Strategy Board has allowed us to formally explore the creative possibilities of dynamic visualisation techniques in three physical dimensions.  We are exploring this potential at both a practical and more theoretical level.
