Tyrehl Byk's Catharsis

Tomorrow, Sunday, February 23 at 1:00 pm slt, Tyrehl Byk's immesive work Catharsis will return for a single performance at the Eden Celebration sim. (Please plan to arrive early, as seats are limited.) The 24-minute performance piece takes place within a specially scripted theatre in which one witnesses impressive, dynamic particle effects, and all from several vantage points as one's camera view shifts about. If you haven't experienced any of Tyrehl's works before, I can assure you they're more than worth the time—and I've never seen anything else quite like them.

Now, for a few rules to follow: sit down when you arrive (the chair controls your camera view, so there's no best seat in the house), set your draw distance up (at least to 128 I'd say), set particles to maximum, hit the escape key to release your camera, and remove any major scripted things to reduce lag. (These images aren't from Catharsis, but they'll give you an overall idea.) And stay tuned about Tyrehl's upcoming installation at LEA29 and exhibition at the Rose Gallery and Theatre.
