Mytherrella is an infinite iteration through a process of imagination built on scientific data and driven by the mythology of the aurora borealis. It dreams of new auroral formations starting from a dataset of all-sky images depicting auroral activity from the Kiruna Atmospheric and Geophysical Observatory at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics. Mytherrella uses human interaction in an effort to give up control over its hallucinations. Both human and computer are in search of the lost auroras as seen by the first people that described them. Ten mythological lores and oddities are woven together with soundscapes and computer-generated images, attempting to recreate the original narrative, but only a faint trace of the prior magic can be unearthed.
