Txoom

The word txOom is an amalgam of ‘texture’ and ‘bloom’.

txOom was a collaboration with four European organisations (Time's Up, Kibla, Interactive Institute and Future Physical) and several independent artists, between 2002 and 2003. It was supported through the European Culture Programme 2000.

txOom moves away from static representations of art and culture and invites its visitors to actively take part in the environment's growth and transformation, thereby shaping their synaesthetic experiences.

New meaning is created in the interstices of babble, sensory confusion and comprehension, creating a plurality of voices.

txOom, as word, concept, sonic and visual imprint, tactile and physical sensation, and responsive environment enfolds as you go go along, accumulating meaning, yet never fixating it.
