Harry is a multidisciplinary creative and immersive experience producer. In the year before the pandemic he studied a Masters in Virtual and Extended Reality where he met Chris Constantinou and they decided to form a creative company called Tangle dedicated to making all things immersive in and around Bristol. Chris is a creative technologist, developer and educator with experience in the Games and VR Industry. Interested in building multi-user experiences and creative solutions with immersive technologies.
Tangle Immersive is at the very start of their journey into creating exciting and beguiling immersive experiences for everyone. They are at the stage where they have a thousand ideas and all the energy in the world to test them out (but no space to do it until now)
Their immersive experiences they hope will be full bodied and interactive, not just limited to VR headsets. They are interested in collaborative experiences for audiences/visitors to our spaces, with accessibility at the forefront of their minds. Their work will emphasise themes around societal and environmental difficulties, which can help shift and develop new perspectives for everyone.
Tangle Immersive have a number of ideas that they would like to explore but on the top of that list is an experience they’ve dubbed ‘Story-Time Ti-Pi’. Story-Time Ti-Pi would be for everyone but principally an experience aimed at young families; parents with small children and will be a casual audio visually aided bedtime story-like interactive experience. By developing an interactive experience, the audience can interact with the process of making that experience could be something really exciting for those that stumble upon them at Broadwalk!
